Applause for the Average Woman!

Here's thoughtful post entitled "Photo of Average-Size Woman Astonishes Glamour Readers" in PDNPulse. The article revolves around the running of a very small photo in Glamour of a nude model with an "average sized" body. Being "average" myself I'm glad to see other ladies (esp. models) feeling sexy about their bodies, but responses to both Glamour and PDNPulse show that deeper thinking is still involved in the Industry. And for a bit more on the subject check out the Glamour Mag link!

Yes, it has been quite some time since I made a post. Suffice it to say my life has felt like a tornado since December. But I am back and am VERY proud to announce that the new Women Warriors have been added to my website! Please go check them out and let me know what you think.

Also, tomorrow I head to Portland, OR, to attend PHOTOLUCIDA, a huge photo portfolio event. I'll meet with about 16 different reviewers from around the globe and get feedback on my project. My portfolio looks AWESOME and I cannot wait to share it.

When I get back I will be sure to post photos and talk about how the event was.

NYMPHOTO, a webspace for Women Photographe

Since it has been quite some time since I made a post I figured I'd better do something! Today I am in my home office editing some wedding photos, and just checked my email to find this great Women's web resource. Thanks to my friend Martin Berg for endlessly sending me great links to things like NYMPHOTO!

From their BLOGSPOT:
NYMPHOTO is a collective of women in photography dedicated to creating a community of and for female artists & art administrators, in order to span the gender divide that pervades throughout the art world today. Our primary concern is to increase the exposure of our & other female photographers and the work they create. The collective is a fusion of industries: the scholastic, the representative and the museum.

Honorary WOMAN WARRIOR of the week: Darryl Roberts!

The documentary I went to see last night AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL is an extremely poignant look at the beauty and fashion industry and how it negatively affects millions of American women (and men). The story mainly follows the career of young model Gerren Taylor, who began doing runway at TWELVE! Interspersed with her story are interviews with industry people, doctors, scientists and regular Joes and Joe-ettes. Roberts explores the relationships between airbrushed and retouched advertising and the relatively low self-worth that many women feel, as well as the industry's unwillingness to change. While to many "educated" adults much of this information may already be known, he also reveals how, even when we know what we are up against, we can still fall victim.

Roberts said, in a Q&A session afterwards, that during his research he interviewed 200 women. Each of these women was asked several different questions, one of them being, "Do you feel beautiful." Only two women answered yes.

I hearby commend Darryl Roberts for this engaging movie, and nominate him honorary WOMAN WARRIOR of the week!
