I just wanted to draw your attention to the work of Gracie Hagen. This project (and the recent accompanying book) shows powerful images of nudity – unflattering nudity, something rarely seen in today’s society.

The media usually only shows us sexualised, airbrushed, and unrealistic bodies.

The human body is a wonderful thing; it is not just there, whether male or female, for other people’s entertainment or sexual pleasure; it can do so much and be so much more.

And it just goes to show that the perfect body really is an illusion.
