Ordinary Women Shown in Photography Book
“Your beauty does not belong to you,” Scipio said. “It is a gift that should be shared.”
The 77 women who are depicted are seen in their homes, at their dining room tables, even in their laundry rooms. They pose outdoors on the beaches in Oregon, in the forest and in the snow of a Calgary winter. Twelve of them are from the Sunshine Coast. They have large breasts or small, they have rolls of fat or skinny ribs, they are pixies and amazons, they have tattoos and piercings or are photographed with their pets. One woman poses beside her wheelchair. In another photo, a burn victim is revealed as transcending her disfigurement.
