You are invited! Yes, you reading this blog right now. You are invited to be a part of the I am project. You do not have to be photographed. I would however love to hear or more accurately, read your story.
For the women reading this I would love to know your I am statement. So finish this sentence, "I am ...". Remember that it must be a positive word about yourself. One that is true and makes you feel good about yourself. I know it's hard to keep it to just word. However after finishing your I am statement I would love for you to elaborate and explain your statement. This is where you will get to tell me your story.
For the men reading this blog I would love to hear your stories about women. Do you have a woman in your life that you find beautiful and strong? It doesn't have to be your partner. Maybe it's your mother sister or best friend. Perhaps you'd like to make a statement that begins "she is.." and finish it with one word that is positive. Then explain your statement. Another interesting story from men may be what it was like the first time that you saw a naked woman (other than a family member). Was it what you expected?
These stories must be true, no fabrications. Reality is always much more interesting than fiction anyhow. The photos are obviously a big part of this project . However the stories are just as powerful and that is something that we can all share.
If you choose to accept this invitation please tell me your age and occupation and whether you are a woman or a man. You may include your first name if you like but feel free to keep your anonymity if that makes you more comfortable. I never share personal information about the women who have posed for me and I won't share personal information from the blog either.
The I am project is not just for women or girls but for men and boys as well. I would love for men to participate just as much as women and this is a great way to do that. Stories are powerful and I would love to hear yours.
