Synopsis: For centuries, painters have used their brushes to turn female nudes into their most famous masterpieces. Now a New York-based, award-winning photographer does the same in this phenomenal homage to women of color titled Beautiful: Nudes by Marc Baptiste. This gorgeous and moving book is a rich compilation of women baring their bodies and their souls.
From fashion model icons Bethann Hardison and Beverly Johnson to soul singer N'dea Davenport to silver screen goddesses Stacy Dash, Rosario Dawson, and Vanessa Williams, and a host of other contemporary women, Beautiful is a labor of love that captures the essence of all women while simultaneously celebrating cultural roots.
Quotes from the subjects take a candid look at how ethnic women view their bodies and give the readers a provocative glimpse into the world of female body image. This work is alternately passionate and intelligent, inspiring and seductive. It is Beautiful.
