Intimate, visually refreshing, maybe even surprising, Bare Reality will make you reconsider how you think and feel about your own body, and those of the women in your life. I feel tender about my own experience as a woman and full of admiration and warmth for female experience. It celebrates the diversity of women’s bodies, and refocuses us to the stories that our bodies can tell and the value they hold, rather than the various ways they can be judged. I wanted to re-humanise women through honest photography, present our breasts as they really are and burst the “fantasy bubble” of the youthful, idealised and sexualised breasts presented by the media.

I think the time has never been better to hear how women really feel about their breasts, and to see how they really look. From smooth Barbie dolls to internet porn, girls and women grow up with a very narrow view of what they should look like, even though in reality there is an enormous range. Perfecto para trabajar con mujeres que han superado un cáncer o que tienen problemas para aceptar su propio cuerpo. This book goes some way to answering some of those questions, and also highlights women's positive and negative impressions of themselves, attitudes of others, and the role breasts play in British culture - impressions that interestingly, often conflict with some of the other contributors. Laura Dodsworth's Kickstarter campaign to finance Bare Reality achieved its funding target within one day and the video accompanying the project was viewed 1.women bare all, bravely sharing un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside intensely personal stories about their breasts, bodies and lives. By turning my lens on physical taboos, I catalyse a ground-breaking conversation into social taboos and offer a deeply personal perspective on our most private, painful and pleasurable stories. I got led to this book after reading The Guardian's excerpts from Laura Dodsworth's upcoming book Manhood. A hundred women have bared their breasts and their souls as part of a project to further understanding of how women really feel about their breasts, and how they really look.

Pictures of topless women with their commentary about their breasts, showing what real breasts look like on real women with voice and humanity as priority (as opposed to air-brushing, underwires or uplifts). I love that the subjects' own words and stories are edited minimally, only for flow, and allowed to come through in each woman's voice. At the same time, in Western culture they are considered a woman’s single most significant sexual attribute.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Laura and the creation of 'Womanhood' were the subject of a documentary for Channel 4, '100 Vaginas', which received 5 star reviews and has been broadcast around the world.

Breasts are catalysts for discussing intimate aspects of women’s lives, such as growing up, sexuality, motherhood, breastfeeding, relationships, body image, health, cancer and ageing.Womanhood departs from the 'ideal vagina' and presents the gentle un-airbrushed truth, allowing us to understand and celebrate our diversity.
