The Stripped Project

May 10, 2010

Gabrielle Loisel sent me a link to her blog awhile back and I was intrigued at the concept, but have not had a chance to look at it until tonight. It definitely lived up to its expectations! She has a similar intent as SOAM does – bringing reality into view for all to see – but her execution is a little different. The photos, of both men and women, are all taken by Gabrielle herself with absolutely no photoshopping or fancy lighting. The blog also includes an array of related articles and links to relevant stories we should all find very important.

So, check it out, but do take note that it includes nudity and you may consider it NSFW.

    What an awesome idea! I might have to show this one to my husband, who is–if anything–harder on his body than I am on mine!

    I appreciated that and agree with Colleen. Also all the links she had to other sites, thebellyproject and thebodyimageproject. They are a lot like SOAM.

    It’s great. I like that it’s not “sexual” poses,just simply people without clothes on. I would like them to go for true diversity and maybe show people that have handicaps or scars too.

    Audrey, your comment made me think about The Century Project (www.thecenturyproject.com). It’s a photography exhibit I saw in college. The photographer was trying to photograph women from birth to 100, and tell their stories. Many of the women have body issues, or have had masectomies, and a few have handicaps. They cover all kinds of body types and backgrounds, you should check it out!

    Thanks so much for posting this! It’s so amazing to hear what others think about the site!

    Audrey, I’m hoping the site will become more diverse as well, with people who have large tattoos, unusual pigmentation, scars, handicaps, etc. I’m also hoping to increase the number of nonwhite volunteers featured. Thus far, however, the majority of volunteers have been in a pretty narrow demographic (young, able-bodied whites).

    If you guys know anyone in the Atlanta area who might be interested in modeling, send them my way!
