The Nu Project – O Projeto Nu


Women of North America I

Mulheres da América do Norte II

Mulheres da América do Sul

Achei essas fotos muito legais!  Todas as revistas masculinas deveriam ser compostas de mulheres assim, de verdade :) Quem sabe desse jeito eles não esperariam tanto da gente…imagens do que nunca seremos, até porque nunca ninguém foi perfeito ;) Essas fotos são bacanas também porque nos mostram como ficaremos se – ou quando – estivermos grávidas, acometidas por câncer, formos submetidas a cirurgias, emagrecermos muito e também se ou quando formos mais velhas…

Eles estarão aqui no Brasil (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Manaus, Belo Horizonte, talvez Brasília e mais uma cidade, dependendo do interesse das mulheres que enviarem seus dados) nas duas primeiras semanas de novembro para fotografar as mulheres que quiserem ser fotografadas em suas próprias casas. Quem quiser participar (tem que ter mais de 21 anos de idade), basta entrar aqui e preencher o formulário com seus dados (nome, endereço de email, cidade, estado, país e dizendo que tem mais de 21 anos de idade). O ensaio dura em torno de uma hora – você não paga nada para ser fotografada,mas também não recebe nada em troca, apenas 10 fotos suas retocadas, e suas fotos serão expostas no site e num possível livro futuro. Se você não quiser as fotos expostas online, ou seja, se quiser fazer um ensaio privado, eles cobram a partir de 1.500 dólares.

The Nu Project is a series of honest nudes of normal women from all over the world. The project began in 2005 and has stayed true to the original vision: no professional models, minimal makeup and no glamour. The focus of the project has been and continues to be the subjects and their personalities, spaces, insecurities and quirks.

To date, over 100 women across North and South America have participated in the project.  Without their courage, confidence and trust, none of this would have been possible. We are so thankful for their willingness to open their homes to us. 

If you’d like to get involved as a contributor to our fine art book you can find the information to the right.  If you’d like to sign up for a shoot please visit the participation page for more information.

FAQ

Who may participate?

The project is open to women over 21, regardless of body type, weight, etc…  To that end, it is not necessary to submit nude photographs of yourself with your participation request.

Where do you shoot?

Our current series is set in participant homes.  We are Minneapolis-based, but we often do shoots when we travel.  If you are not based in Minneapolis, but you’d like to sign up, please send us a message on the contact form and we will be in touch if we are heading to your city.

Do you pay me / Do I have to pay you?

Participation in the project is free, but for your time you’ll receive approximately 10 retouched, finished images for your own personal use.  We ask that if you use the images online, you accompany each with a photo credit and link to the Nu Project website.

How long does a shoot take?

Usually around an hour if we’re in the studio and approximately 2 hours if we’re on location.

How long does it take to get my images?

Processing times vary depending on how busy we are with other work.  We will contact you by email when your images are ready.

What are you going to do with the images?

They will be part of this website and blog.  We’re also hoping to publish them in a book.

If I don’t want you to use my images online / in print?

This project is all about the wilingness of the subjects to share their stories in a public way.  We understand that it’s not right for everybody, so if you’re interested in a private shoot that doesn’t get published to the Nu Project, those begin at $1500 and include a print credit.  Please contact us if you want more information.

What’s the next step if I want in?

Please fill out the participation form to the right and you’ll be contacted about upcoming shoots.  Thank you!
