Bare Breasts

Dirk Gently showed me an interesting site of a photographer, Jordan Matter. I am especially fascinated by his series of pictures of women in New York, all with bare breasts. The stories linked to the pictures are also fascinating, often feminist and always about real people.

Watching the series is a great way of understanding some of that internal body hating that so women have and the many reasons behind it. It is also fascinating to wonder if a guy going around taking pictures of bare boobs is doing something feminist or not and why.

You can watch the whole series by starting here. Not worksafe, although it should be.
