Curvy Women Are Beautiful!

Why is it that so many women are unhappy with the way their bodies look? Lately, I’ve noticed it’s not just women either. Men feel the pressure also. Even my nine-year-old son says to me on a weekly basis, “Mom, I don’t want to be fat when I grow up.”

I am aware that in my country (the States) obesity is at an all time high, now considered to be a major health problem nationwide which costs billions of dollars to address. It’s perplexing.

For me personally, God gave me large breasts. Often times, I wish I could make them go away so I could be more like a stick figure because that is what is considered to be beautiful in our society.

Roni River is a divinely curvy woman and self portrait photographer from Tel Aviv, Israel. Like many women with curves, she had a poor self body-image. In 2009, to liberate herself from those feelings, she began her 365 project where she took one self portrait each day for a year and posted it on Flickr. Fast forward to now, she is one of the most popular women on Flickr, and she has a new book of photographs that was recently released.

Roni’s creativity and self awareness is inspiring to me and countless others who have drawn strength from her bravery and honesty. The raw emotion and stunning beauty in each photograph speaks for itself. And, by the way, she is not fat. We have a twisted sense of beauty in our society if we think this is fat. Roni, you are truly a special person, inside and out.

You can connect with Roni on Twitter at @Spyvee. Her famous Flicker collection is here. And, if you would like to check out her new book, you can find that here. Thank you @NiniBaseema for introducing this wonderful artist to me!
