To eradicate inequality, women must first fully accept and embrace their own bodies.
On International Women’s Day 2018, we present Danish photographer Mathilde Grafström’s controversial photography series, THE FEMALE BEAUTY PROJECT has been credited for creating a huge debate in the Scandinavian countries and across Europe. The project, which shows naked women of different nationalities in their natural surroundings, transforms the female nude from object of desire to active subject.
In 2016, a story broke in the international media about the female Danish photographer’s first exhibition. An estimated 54 million people worldwide have been confronted with the radical and important message of The Female Beauty Project: to eradicate inequality, women must first fully accept and embrace their own bodies. The leading conservative newspaper Berlingske Tidende had Mathilde on the front page, naked, in support of her art and message at the International Women’s Day 2016
