    Great work Danielle – very creative.

  • Half Disappointed

    Why, why, why, maintain the link between obesity and food in half of these? Such a wonderful opportunity to break that untrue, oppressive, and discriminatory link, and yet you half flunked it.. I appreciate the food-less ones. Obese people are not extensions of food.

  • Luis

    I didn’t like either of the images with food, but loved the models and the other photos. congratulations!

    “Why, why, why, maintain the link between obesity and food”
    Yeah because eating 20,000 calories a day has NOTHING to do with obesity. For the most part people are obese because they over eat.

    Why, why, why, maintain the link between obesity and food ???…Really are you joking… I think Somebody is in serious denial.

    Because ‘You are what you eat’… End of story.

    A really honest portrait shoot- shot in a very creative and celebratory style. Respect to the subjects that sat for this session- and the photographer for being so creative…

    I agree with the “Why, why, why, maintain the link between obesity and food” comment. It’s ridiculously naive to say that people are only obese because they eat “20,000″ calories a day. No, there are many reasons as to why a person is overweight. For example, my aunty suffers from an illness which means she has to take heavy steriods and these cause her to gain weight dramatically. You don’t understand every situation.

    I too am disappointed with the images that include food. Not because I don’t think most obese people overeat – of course they do. That’s a given. Why does that have to be a focus. Most people who eat to the point of being obese have deep seated sadness inside and many underlying issues….issues that many thin people have but perhaps they choose to drink or be violent or bottle it up. Those things can’t be seen on the outside though, so it’s not as easy to judge. When you’re fat it’s all people see. It’s strange that the person can’t be separated from what makes them that way. The woman is fat and decadent and beautiful….so we’ll put her with a pile of cakes that are fat and decadent and beautiful. It’s so cliche and it’s been done before. Does every photo shoot of a skinny model have a pair of running shoes or a pile of salad next to her? For me it is about realising that obese people are firstly people and it would be nice to see them defined by something other than food.

    Can we just be kind to each other about these beautiful photos please?

  • Lively Granddad

    Led here by a link from Woodhill Sexual Freedom Alliance FB page, and appreciate that regardless of which ones I connect with (no judgments made here about the ‘food’ issue), the photos does bring out the innate sexual expression of the individuals. Not everyone is a model, but everyone needs to be seen and accepted for who they happen to be or choose to be — and the photographer provides opportunity for that to be seen.

    GR8 idea but you should have them SMILE or at least look HAPPy not grouchy ….
