Its funny how there is so much feeling in these photos and most of them are just showing their bottom halfs. love these. such an interestingly cool perspective!

What a pervert! All i see is crotch and ass. Ha! Jk.

Love all the raw details. There is so much beauty in his images. I really enjoyed these...seriously!

Tia said...

So baby butt=crying uterus. Why would you do that to me??
But seriously, these are great! So real and gritty.

it's funny the range of emotions of felt while scrolling down the page. my other thought is that i immediately want to search for a face, a story, something more.

Kellie said...

I was totally loving these and then I got to the last one and gagged. :) Happy Thursday!

Iva said...

there is SO much story behind someones hands and feet. Emotions and lifestyles can be seen and felt. These are truly gorgeous and beautiful- stories through images. Each one speaks in its own tone. Some make me sad, some make me smile- and the 2nd reminds me of myself {I sit with my legs like that 90% of time, I am right now, not sure what to make or think of that.}

super fabulous post drollgirl!!!! have a great day!!

Char said...

all a story waiting to be shared.

Tracie said...

I love the perspective of these. (But I don't want someone to take pictures of my chubby legs.)

Pretty Little World said...

I love these! The angels are quite unexpected. While they might traditionally be considering unflattering, it's kind of amazing how they make for such stunning images.

Diane said...

glad to not be a subject of this series! my legs aren't so flattering. my feet though, they are kinda cute! :)

TERI REES WANG said...

Phew...

I am lucky to be able to walk away with out finding myself sucked in between the folds of flesh.

Cafe Fashionista said...

Wow! These are some of the most creative images I have ever seen! :)

Laura Trevey said...

These are beautiful and so real!

~KS said...

Caroline said...

So intense...amazing the emotion these can bring and you don't even see the faces!

diane said...

If every picture tells a story, his speak Volumes.
These are some of the most expressive photographs that I have ever seen.

Cheryl said...

Such emotional images! I love how he gives you permission to stare at things in others we usually only glance fleetingly.

...love Maegan said...

bunny, The Paris House said...

There is a lot of emotion in some of these photos, I love how hands can tell so much about a person. My hands are the last thing on my body I take care of, because I garden so much I have given up on them. But I don't care, to me they are beautiful because they create, make and grow things.
stop by I'm doing a little giveaway...

Bathwater said...

What was the from a set called how to make people look ugly?

Salt said...

These are all so fantastic and beautiful in their own way! (Even old man crotch can be beautiful in it's own way...right?)

Sandra said...

People are so fascinating!! great pictures, fulled with thoughts and feelings...

Simply Mel said...

Definitely a different perspective on the human race with this angle of the lens!

girl Japan said...

These photos are very touching. They show people as they are, with their complexes and natural features, I don't know why but they make me cry, make me realize we are as we are. We are people. Beautiful!
