Bodies and Souls: The Century Project

Frank Cordelle had an idea. He took nude photographs of women whose ages spanned over a century. The first picture is of the head of a baby girl crowning through her mother’s vagina. Not quite making it to a hundred, the last picture is of a 94-year-old woman whose photograph is accompanied by the following message:

I posed so some old lady will not fear age, and some old men would know old women are not so strange. I loved the challenge of posing nude, such excitement! My husband would have said, “Some picture, kid!”

Most of the pictures are in fact accompanied by a message written by the women themselves and although I did not read the entire book, I did take a look at the excerpts on Frank’s website and let me tell you they are heartbreaking, but in a good way. My eyes literally welled up with tears. As did my neighbors eyes when I told her about the project and the stories these brave women have shared.

I’m looking for some assistance in finding people with excessive facial piercings and those who have had body modification.

Mark Seliger, is releasing a book this year made up of his personal work of nudes, landscapes, still lifes and portraits.   Many of the portraits he has taken are of people with excessive facial piercings or have had body modification.   I have attached some references of those we have already shot.

We often travel for work so if you know of people around the country, please do send any and all suggestions our way.
Compensation is $200 (negotiable) plus a print from the shoot.

To do an erotic photo shoot or not

Oh the dilemma, well not really. The decision was easy in the end but can't tell you what it was just yet, where is the fun and suspense in that?
