Bare Reality: Rehumanising Women Through Honest Photography

"This is how we look. This is how we feel."

In response to the unrealistic expectation of what women's breasts should look like, photographer Laura Dodsworth is releasing Bare Reality, a collection of photographs of 100 women's real breasts, the kind never portrayed by the media. The book, which is currently being funded through Kickstarter, features interviews with each woman and a discovery of what breasts mean for each one of them. Laura will donate £1.00 from every book sold to Breast Cancer UK.

There has been so much public debate about breasts recently, from Free the Nipple to No More Page 3, from breastfeeding selfies on Facebook to Rihanna on the red carpet, from Scout Willis’s topless walk through New York to Grace Coddington’s banned cartoon on Instagram. I think the time has never been better to hear how women really feel about their breasts, and to see how they really look.
