Bare Reality: 100 Women, Their Breasts, Their Stories

Launch of Dodsworth's photobook, ‘Bare Reality’, which shares 100 unretouched, anonymous pictures of real women's breasts and demonstrates how differently we think about our bodies.


“Compelling words, compelling pictures, compelling women... the ordinary beauty of life.” --Susie Orbach, Psychoanalyst, writer, author of Fat is a Feminist Issue

“‘Bare Reality’ is a beautiful, important and tender project. I love how you learn each woman's story through her breasts her development, her response to the culture around her, illness, her sexuality, her children. I feel warm and full of tenderness for myself as a woman, and for the female experience. It's going to be a very special book.” --Lucy-Anne Holmes writer and founder of the No More Page 3 campaign

“Breast Cancer UK is delighted to support Bare Reality's Kickstarter campaign. This touching, inspirational book cuts through the sexual objectification of breasts and encapsulates how unique, yet similar, we all are. Each story provides a beautifully tender insight into the diversity of our emotions about our breasts throughout life's stages and experiences.

We hope this work will become a powerful force for social change by encouraging more women to speak freely about their breasts and inspiring them to find out more about breast cancer and the wide range of risk factors associated with the disease.

We gratefully accept the author's kind offer of a donation from the sale of each book, which will help us to continue our work to prevent breast cancer before it starts by reducing our routine exposure to the harmful chemicals in our every day products, food and environment.” --Breast Cancer UK
