Obese Women In The Nude, Challenges Traditional Notions Of Beauty

I’ve heard many times before that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Photographer Yossi Loloi think so, which is why in his project entitled “Full Beauty” he features nude photographs of women 420 pounds and larger.

With a deep respect for his subjects and a challenging eye toward both pop culture and art history, Loloi shows that the history of the female nude is a dangerously limited one. While it is a rarity to show curvy bodies in advertising, entertainment or even contemporary art, obese women are virtually never acknowledged in these realms, despite the growing number of Americans who are overweight.

By showcasing women up to 600 pounds, Loloi shows a softness and beauty to an often ignored body type.

On his website Loloi writes: “I believe we own ‘freedom of taste’ and one shouldn’t be reluctant of expressing his inclination towards it. Limiting this freedom is living in a dictatorship of aesthetics.”

Do you find Loloi’s photographs shocking or comforting? I’m curious to know your opinion, so sound off!

    Beauty and obesity are two separate subjects…and these women are really unhealthy, so there’s nothing comforting about that.

    It’s sad that they don’t even have to conceal their private areas! It’s not about being skinny – it’s being healthy. How long do u think these women are gonna live and how many health problems do they have? It shouldn’t be celebrated to be this unhealthy. It’s like accepting the lifestyle of drug abuse. Both are abusing the body that was given to u for an addiction. I know some large women have illnesses that cause them to have weight issue, but they are still the same
