Nu Muses aims to redefine how society perceives nudity.
The Nu Muses calendar shoot takes place later this month and it features 12 models from various parts of the World. The models are being flown to the Dominican Republic to shoot with famed French photographer David Bellamere.
One of the beauties being featured in the 2017 calendar is plus size model Sabina Karlsson of JAG models. Each of the women selected for this project expressed their passion for this project, and displayed individuality.
“I’d like to show that being nude is a form of art, and that being nude as a curvy woman with thighs and hips is as beautiful as any other body type. You own your body and should be proud of it – it’s unique,” expressed Karlsson.
After receiving global submissions from the Philippines to India, Brazil, and Mexico, the judges and creative director, evaluated the models assessing them on three categories; their unique look and beauty, social media voting allowing people to vote on their favorites, and most importantly their inspiring personality and views towards nudity.
“It’s such a wonderful time for women, and we hope to empower these women and others to celebrate the female form in a sophisticated, elegant and most natural way. Nudity is one of the oldest and classic forms of art, and we aim, through NU MUSES, to help reestablish that,” shared Creative Director Christianne Brooks.
