Welcome to the first in our series of the Nu Project photo layouts. It proved to be popular on the internet among the “older” crowd (and since we don’t cater to anyone who finds Justin Bieber sexy or knows the first thing about Hannah Montana) this is right up our alley.
As we’ve gotten older we’ve learned that our partner’s bodies begin to lose a lot of that ‘thing’ that once made us irresistible to Hugh Hefner’s collection of spray painted ladies and photoshop. Some of us keep ourselves up as best as we can, while others cannot resist temptation after many years of dealing with life and its crap it throws us on any given day.
In accordance to our demographic of the 35 to 65 year old crowd, we felt this would be more appealing to you in the way that these nude women are nude! And realistic to the way it really is here in this world we call Reality.
We’ve found a disturbing amount of men (and women) who has believed that the tattooed and pierced shaved chicks of porn are the ‘norm’. And then when they get home to find a women in their presence and her tits are bit less pert and fake, they find themselves ‘dealing’ with it, or disappointed to no end.
Well we here in this real world find these women (and men, as it were) can’t be your fantasy dream cock sucking and slobbering whore you praised many times before.
Well finally someone has given ‘normal’ women a place on the internet (and in a book). It’s called the Nu Project and it is a beautiful website full of naked women who are not in the Playboy category.
The Nu Project, a collection of nude photographs shot by Minneapolis photographer Matt Blum, seeks to add some variety to the mix.
Blum started The Nu Project in 2005 but said it really took off when his wife, Katy Kessler, became the project’s editor. Blum sees the photos as filling a void.
“When I started shooting nudes there was no project like it,” he told The Huffington Post in an email. “The things that I had seen either used models with typical model bodies or average people who were made to look extremely unimpressive. I figured there was a way to treat women (of any size/shape) like models and photograph them beautifully, respectfully without a lot of sexual under or overtones.”
The women photographed are all volunteers, and most of the pictures are taken in the subjects’ homes – where they feel most comfortable. The Nu Project’s website showcases six galleries of nudes, three shot in North America, three in South America.
“The hardest part for us is that the project is 100 percent volunteer, so I do not see the women until I show up at their door,” Blum writes on the website. “We’re doing our best to encourage all types of women, but we need volunteers of all backgrounds and walks of life to make the project more complete.”
Blum said he ultimately hopes that these images inspire the women who see them to feel better about their own bodies. “It’s been really exciting to hear people react to the images,” he told HuffPost. “We get a lot of feedback from women (especially) who have struggled to see themselves as beautiful, and this project has helped them on that path.”
