View Badges! A beautiful collection of photographs of nude and semi-nude pregnant women. BluesBar BluesBar.
Many women go through pregnancy taking many photos along the way -- I sure did. Never in my life did I feel as beautiful as when I had life growing inside me. Photographer Alexa Garbarino sees that beauty as well and photographed over women for her book Ripe: The Essence of the Pregnant Nude.
As a Chicago Maternity PhotographerI was so excited to be able to photograph this beautiful mommy-to-be! We did her maternity session inside our gorgeous Pilsen studio as well as on the beach near Chicago. It is such an exciting time for them - especially since they are expecting twins!
In red chalk, it portrays a woman — naked apart from a ring of pearls around her neck and the jewels in her unravelling hair — pointing with her right hand to something beyond the picture plain, whilst her left hand is placed on top of her head. Rosso, rather than making an idealised nude form that has no relationship to time, shows a body that, I think, is hauntingly beautiful, but built into time, particularised but also universal in showing the rounded but softened belly that is familiar to most women who have given birth. In the Renaissance, this sculpture was praised for its beauty.
Nude photography is the creation of any photograph which contains an image of a nude or semi-nude person, or an image suggestive of nudity. Nude photography is undertaken for a variety of purposes, including educational uses, commercial applications and artistic creations. The exhibition or publication of nude photographs may be controversial, more so in some cultures or countries than in others, and especially if the subject is a minor.
