Participate in the Normal Nudes Photo Project!
WinkWink is now accepting submissions for the Normal Nudes Photo Project! The purpose of the Normal Nudes Photo Project is to create a vulnerable and affirming photo collection that showcases nude human bodies in their everyday form.
While ALL bodies are "normal" bodies, we often don't see them PRESENTED normally, exactly as they are.
Bodies are inherently neutral and normal: we reject the definition they've been given by predatory capitalism and patriarchal, anti-queer, anti-POC narratives. This collection stands in opposition to the destructive tactics used to create, prey on, and exploit body shame and insecurities.
The Normal Nudes Photo Project is a step toward normalizing the body, a radical step outside the pressure to conform to a narrow set of body and beauty standards (that generally prioritize white, abled, thin, young bodies).
We accept and affirm every body exactly as it is. Inspired by www.reddit.com/r/normalnudes, we believe in the power of exposing ourselves to the unerotic, everyday body.
Our bodies are enough. We are enough.
This collection will be open to the public on Friday, September 13, 2019 as part of WinkWink's 1st anniversary weekend. It will also be featured in November Art Walk. More information about these events available soon.
