The Bare project aims to empower its subjects. Its goal is to create portraits that celebrate both the beauty and flaws of the person in front of the camera.
Each subject is asked to answer two questions prior to the shoot:
- What do you love about your body?
- What are you most insecure of?
Her answers will serve as an inspiration and as a guide in the journey that she and the photographer will take in making her pictures — from concept to print.
After the shoot, the subject is asked one more question —
- After looking at your pictures, have they changed the way you look at yourself? How?
The hope is that the subject sees not only what makes her beautiful, but also how her imperfections complete the picture.
