It is a brave thing — to bare ones’ body, to acknowledge its beauty, and to reveal and accept its flaws.
And for this, I will always be grateful to the people who dared to take on the challenge of the Bare project. To show my gratitude, I am gifting each subject with a large print of their favorite photo from their respective shoots. This is not only a memento of how they looked at this point in their lives, but a ready reminder affirming and empowering them to love everything about their bodies and themselves.
Kristie is a good friend that I reconnected with during this project. She has come to bear her stretch marks with pride since she worked on the series with me. You can read about her other realizations and view her pictures here.
