Post The Century Project
I'm curious to understand what people, especially women, on the board here think about this book, especially considering the fact that it contains naked pictures of (omg) children, teenagers, and onwards.

Exploitive? Purient? Pornographic? Worse, child-pornographic? Lewd? Obscene?

Or not?

The Century Project, by photographer Frank Cordelle, is a chronological series of nude photographic portraits of more than one hundred women and girls from the moment of birth to nearly a hundred years of age. A diverse group of photographs comprising women of many ages, shapes, sizes, and life experiences is presented in this exquisitely disarming project. Most of the images are accompanied by moving statements written by the women themselves.

Personally, this sounds like one of the most inspiring works of photography I've ever heard of, not to mention the most ambitious. I'm planning on buy a copy each for my sister, mother, girlfriend, and grandmother.

Bad things happen because people are stupid.

The context and stories with each picture are very thoughtful. There's a lot of focus on self worth, personal humility and physical disorders instead of just "ZOMG BOOBIES!" Looks like a nice book, and I don't doubt a male version would have a hard time evoking the same emotions and personality.

I think it is a beautiful piece of work... there is nothing sexual about it... it is the artistry in which he took the photos... Very moving... I shall have to buy a copy.

I do the arts for this place... --->Image
