It isn’t hard to find female nudity in Media but the kind of women who featured in these pictures is relatively from a restricted category of shapes and sizes. Minneapolis photographer Matt Blum is working on “The Nu Project” with a view to experiment beyond the work that has been done in this area. Although the project was initialed by Blum in 2005 but it only picked up after Blum’s wife Katy Kessler joined the project as editor.
“When I started shooting nudes there was no project like it,” said Blum in an e-mail to The Huffington Post. “The things that I had seen either used models with typical model bodies or average people who were made to look extremely unimpressive. I figured there was a way to treat women (of any size/shape) like models and photograph them beautifully, respectfully without a lot of sexual under or overtones.”
The women featuring in these photographs are all volunteers and shot in their homes as they felt most comfortable within them. On “The Nu Project’s” website you can find six galleries of nude photographs, out of which three belong to North America whereas the other three are from South America.
