A: Do you know?

For my latest project I''m searching women who dare to participate in "The Naked Truth". So often we feel uncertain about our body, so rare the moments we feel pleased with it. We''re led by media who dictate "the perfect body" with the "perfect sizes - causing diseases like anorexia, boulimia, depressions and more misery. Are you fed up with this and ready to face confrontation with your "real" self, sign up for this new project. You''ll be photographed in a beautyful way, not retouched in any way - you''re fine as you are!

These images will be shown in expositions, websites and other media like books, magazines and internet. Filling out and signing a model-release form is mandatory to participate. If you pose in the nude you have to be 18 years or older (there''s no maximum age)

If you have any questions regarding your participation to this project or want to sign up, you can sent an e-mail to We''ll answer as soon as possible...

Kind regards,

Carla Broekhuizen

    This a wonderful image and it reminds me of the series of wonderful nudes of heavy artists models that Irving Penn showed in the 1980s. Those images, like this one, are deep and sensual and completely redefine the aesthetic of the photographic nude (and aesthetic that I think badly needs redefining).
