Description

From smooth Barbie dolls to internet porn, girls and women grow up with a very narrow view of what they should look like, even though in reality there is an enormous range. This touching, inspirational book cuts through the sexual objectification of breasts and encapsulates how unique, yet similar, we all are. I love how you learn each woman's story through her breasts her development, her response to the culture around her, illness, her sexuality, her children. Your usual photography book is all about the photographer either showing off their technical skills or is self promotion. I am in the non-breastfed demographic so that could explain my fascination with all things female (chests) or perhaps I just like what I do not have.

The Bare Reality series has been featured and reviewed in The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Sun, The Mirror, The Independent, The Evening Standard, Metro, i paper, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Grazia, Stylist, DIVA, Gay Times, Huff Post, BBC World, ITV’s Loose Women, BBC Womans Hour, BBC Radio London, BBC London News, Channel 5 News, Radio 5 Live, Talk Radio, LBC, and many international newspapers, magazines, radio and television programmes.I got led to this book after reading The Guardian's excerpts from Laura Dodsworth's upcoming book Manhood. Breasts are catalysts for discussing intimate aspects of women’s lives, such as growing up, sexuality, motherhood, breastfeeding, relationships, body image, health, cancer and ageing. We hope this work will become a powerful force for social change by encouraging more women to speak freely about their breasts and inspiring them to find out more about breast cancer and the wide range of risk factors associated with the disease. I love that the subjects' own words and stories are edited minimally, only for flow, and allowed to come through in each woman's voice.

We see images of breasts everywhere in the media and yet “real” breasts are taboo, hidden away beneath clothes and bras.

We gratefully accept the author's kind offer of a donation from the sale of each book, which will help us to continue our work to prevent breast cancer before it starts by reducing our routine exposure to the harmful chemicals in our every day products, food and environment. Pictures of topless women with their commentary about their breasts, showing what real breasts look like on real women with voice and humanity as priority (as opposed to air-brushing, underwires or uplifts). They talk about their boobs but really, they are just an extension of these wonderful, warm and funny individuals. I think the time has never been better to hear how women really feel about their breasts, and to see how they really look.
