Amy Gelb, in her introduction to As Is, beautifully writes about her journey which led to her project of photographing women’s bodies. Her sensitivity, attention to detail, understanding of women and their body images all shine through in this work of art.
After seeing the photographs, it was fascinating to read what each person wrote about how she felt about her body throughout her life and while being photographed for this project.
I believe As Is will help women see themselves differently. It certainly did that for me!
