"This Photographer Takes Beautiful, Powerful Shots Of "Nude Grandmothers" (NSFW)" - BUST

In a country and era where agism runs rampant, come this ray of pink sunlight. Bust Magazine recently ran a series of photographs by Natalie Krick that are at once glorious and empowering. Kudos to both Bust and Natalie for celebrating ageless sexuality.

Bust - Nude Grandmothers

Bust Arts writer, Lydia Wang @lydiaetc writes:

The Nude Grandmothers project, a series of nude portraits of older women, began as a collaboration between Krick and photo editor Amanda Gorence. “The impetus was to create a celebratory and liberating piece that explores female sensuality later in life, and how it evolves,” Gorence says of the series. “Women are often ‘aged out’ of conversations around sexuality at a certain point. We wanted to demystify that idea.”

Krick’s art often challenges perceptions of beauty, femininity, and nudity. The photographer, whose art has been featured everywhere from The New Yorker to Marie Claire South Africa to The Huffington Post, draws a lot of inspiration from fashion media and pin-ups, but she enjoys “playing with these cliches of beauty and sexuality,” she tells BUST.

“I felt conflicted when I looked at photographs of women in mainstream culture,” Krick says. “I started to think about how these photographs were constructed. How is the body styled and posed to appear female and sexual? How are the photographs retouched to appear beautiful?”
