Feminine Transitions: A Photographic Celebration of Natural Beauty is a beautiful collection of photos of women from all ages reflecting on beauty. What’s especially cool about the project is that it features every woman without makeup. As a guy, I can’t pretend to understand that societal pressures of what women go through to be deemed “pretty” but I can say that I found it really inspiring to view these women, in all their natural glory, along with their own commentary about their personal beauty.
Photographer and author Alyscia Cunningham had this to say about the project:
“I simply wanted to put together a body of work that fosters a woman’s love for herself and encourages women to believe in their own beauty, despite the signs of aging.”
Clearly this message is something the mainstream media should take advantage of. Furthermore, as a blog focused on natural hair and my own personal interest in all things natural and organic, it’s great to see a volume that really reflects that natural sensibility. I have a feeling that some of you will really connect to the project as well. It’s pretty awesome. And not to mention, 5% of all proceeds will be donated to women’s empowerment organizations as well.
Feminine Transitions is scheduled to go public in October 2013 and photographer Alyscia Cunningham will be hosting a book launch party in Hyattsville, MD on Sunday, October 27.
