Contemporary Photographers

“Most women over forty are not happy with their bodies. The women in this series, who had the courage to be seen by a 4x5 camera, are no exception. Exhibitionism was not what compelled them to be photographed. […] As I was setting up my camera and lights, I asked each woman to write a page or two about how they see themselves sexually and how their sexuality has changed as they’ve grown older. […] We all have issues in our life that challenge us, and as we grow older physical issues become more important. Resistance certainly shapes form, much as the vicissitudes of age shape our sexuality.” - Sparky Campanella about his project 40 over forty (via)
