A door, a portal preceding a passage to the truth, to whoever you really are, to what you can achieve.
The light of your inner self is shining through the door, only the naked truth stands there awaiting your taking the right step inside and starting the journey of lifetime exploration. Reminding you that you're not a machine and that you can think for yourself.
While it may seem unlikely that an ordinary digital picture can help you achieve all of this, it's not true. There's a lot of work involved before you can stop seeing the bodies, especially that most of us has been taught to only see the outer shell, why?!
I have mentioned the reasons many times, but I will repeat them once again:
1- That view helps complete societies in exploiting women, how many references to heterosexual sex are there in a Hollywood movie? Why are some movie fans obsessed with the occasional "wardrobe malfunctions"?
2- It helps in increasing the wealth of some human beings(the widespread subspecies known as Homo avaricious).
3- Politicians and religious leaders(the two occupations are very similar) will always find something to blame for their failures, and you too will find something to blame for your own failures. This takes away the burden of having to converse with that critical "inner voice".
4- This helps in making you gradually obtain the concept of a "perfect body", and then spend thousands of hours talking to your wife/yourself about how you should look like and what you need to do in order to look like that.
5- You can always pay money for porn producers, there are huge amounts of money involved.
6- You have the freedom to treat women the way you want to.
7- Women won't be able to have any voices when everyone's too busy fantasizing about what their clothes cover.
8- You can always be a slave to your sexual urges.
There's a lot more, but I will probably mention them later.
I find it highly offensive and even disgusting when I realize that some people will never be able to get past Tracy's body. It's hard to miss the beauty in the pictures, but somehow they have learned to be too distracted by the shallow anatomy.
I don't rate this gallery as one of Body in Mind's best galleries, Tracy has a lot of make-up on(If it's her choice then I respect that, but we should be able to dissociate between hazardous chemicals and beauty). The gallery isn't that monotonous, but doesn't offer the variety of innovative images that I have come to expect from Body in Mind, nonetheless I did appreciate the overall idea behind the gallery and didn't want you to miss it.
Think, respect, be inspired!
Body In Mind sometimes features truly beautiful and inspiring galleries and I feel that some of their galleries could have used some more attention. The problem isn't with their highly-skilled photographers or their heavenly beautiful models, I believe the problem lies in the instructions they give to the photographers, this gallery is beautiful. But, there are some negative things about it, the most noticeable of them is what seems to be a problem with Tracy's right eye and the make-up. I can't really think of any woman who sun tans with make-up on. Women are supposed to enjoy nudity as a way of escaping the prevalent lies about beauty in our modern world, showing the innate beauty everyone has.
I personally prefer the shape of the female bodies because they aren't as muscular as male ones (most male models are body builders) and because of the attractiveness and the beauty of the female form. I enjoy the beauty of the model not because she's skinny or because she looks like a super model, I enjoy it because it presents a natural form of beauty, but when the natural look of the model is tainted with excessive make-up or any extraneous element the images become quite distracting. This is one of the reasons I prefer simple nudes to super nudes, they are more simple and more natural.
I will ignore my partisan inclinations towards simple nudes for a while and concentrate on highlighting the positive things about this gallery. First, it's a gallery by Chris Ruegge who's a renowned photographer known for producing beautiful nudes, Tracy is beautiful in the most graceful of ways, the location is good, there are no people around which makes the model feel more relaxed(I have an impression that she wasn't that relaxed at the time of this photo shoot), and it was shot outdoors (leaving an impression of the model feeling free). The last few images are better even though they aren't that innovative, I don't see the point behind making the model stand on some grass and shooting her.
The gallery is beautiful, but if you work at BiM, please tell your boss that the whole point of the images shouldn't be to depict the nude female form, but rather to combine the beauty of the female form with a lot of other elements to produce inspiring galleries. Remember, there's a very thin line between good nudes and pornographic nudes.
OK, I can hear some of you thinking, if he doesn't like this gallery that much then why is he adding it?! I am adding this gallery because it's beautiful, I tend to exaggerate the negative points about a gallery when I feel that it could have featured images which are of a better quality if those little extraneous details were removed. Make-up reminds me of the world of glamour, which isn't quite compatible with tasteful nudes. I am one of those who believe that fashion can be the biggest enemy of true beauty, combining some fashion elements with your pictures can produce good results(e.g Brigham Field), but it doesn't always produce beautiful results.
Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy this gallery of Tracy from BodyInMind.
The wood in this gallery makes it very classy, and gives it a spirit of professionalism and respect. The gallery made me feel that I was sitting in a closed office.
I hope that you will like this Body In Mind gallery of Tracy.
The odds would have it that every once in a while - not often - everything comes together in a way that can only be described as 'perfect'. Such is the case with our latest series of photos of Tracy created by chief BiM photographer Chris Ruegge. The natural light streaming in through a huge open window was perfect. The subtle colours in the background were perfect complimentaries in a sultry tone. And of course the model, Tracy, was perfect, perfect proportions, perfect curves, perfect spirit of quiet pride and natural confidence, perfectly pretty even without any make-up. This is the rarest kind of beauty there is - perfect beauty. In fact, it's photos like these that remind us what beauty is after all: perfection in physical form.View Gallery
These photos of brave and beautiful Tracy by lead BiM photographer Chris RÃƒÂ¼gge make it very easy to imagine a future in which beautiful women have no problem baring their whole bodies in public, in just the same way they now have no problem showing their legs or hair, both of which have been forbidden at various times or in various cultures. Imagine a future where pretty women walked down the street, nude, without a care in the world, splashing barefooted in puddles, and smiling as the sun paints the air with their hair. Imagine a young male tourist taking a snapshot of his girlfriend who removes her clothes for the shot. Is the future full of beautiful nude women? We hope so. But even if it isn't, thanks to Chris RÃƒÂ¼gge and Tracy, the present is. - Body In Mind
I agree with this small description with the gallery. I dream of a similar future myself, however, I need to express my point of view, I don't want the future to be "full of beautiful nude women", but rather "full of human beings who have the choice of being nude without facing any social pressures, discrimination, or humiliation."
Why did I change it to human beings instead of women and why did I omit the word beautiful. The reason is simple, I want both genders to have the same freedom of being nude, and I also want the people to be familiar with the biological variations of human bodies, not everyone has a perfect body like that of Tracy, however, everyone must have the right to enjoy his natural state of being, nudity, without facing any restrictions or constrictions.
I will let you enjoy this gallery now.
