Observations and views from a different set of eyes

Real Beauty..Real Women

on July 31, 2013


I was delighted when I popped into one of my favorite sites, Totally For Women. They have a new feature that I not only wholeheartedly approve of–I applaud them for their initiative.

Page 50 is the name of their new feature and it’s focus is showcasing the real beauty in real women and they are doing it in a stunning fashion.  There will be no photos of runway models, magazine fashionistas or Playboy bunnies.  This project is not about them…it’s about real women.

Each photo is a monochrome shot of a woman wearing a white top with the focus on the woman’s face, not her body.  For the face is where the real beauty of a woman lives…in the twinkle of her eye, in the smile lines curving around her lips and in an engaging look that speaks volumes.

For fifty working days, t4W (Totally For Women) will feature one new photograph with a short bio of that day’s featured woman.  These are everyday women who are displayed with dignity and grace by a fantastic photographer, Sabine Coe. Sabine captures each woman with a true eye for the inner beauty of her subjects.

Sabine Coe is a French mother, housewife and photographer who enjoys taking photos of woman who come from different parts of the world and who now reside in England. She is preparing an Exhibition called “Sabine’s Women Of The World” and in it she will display photographs of women from around the world in a traditional outfit or holding an object that comes from their homeland.

t4W and Sabine Coe have a common goal:

“Every day we will celebrate their wise, enigmatic and engaging faces through the camera lens. This approach is in direct contrast to the way in which the media so often look at women.”

They explain their motivation for this project as:

“t4w believes that the next generations of women – your daughters, sisters, granddaughters, friends – cannot be what they cannot see. t4w values the whole woman…mind body and soul.”

So, bravo, Totally For Women and Sabine Coe for your honest approach to showcasing the real beauty in real women.

    So far, the picks have normal human smiles, not the “duckface” that girls in their twenties do .
