FOR CENTURIES, painters have used their brushes to turn female nudes into their most famed masterpieces. A New York-based, award-winning photographer will do the same in the upcoming title Beautiful: Nudes by Marc Baptiste, an artistic compilation, featuring women of color baring their bodies-and their souls.
FROM FASHION MODEL icon Bethann Hardison to current supermodel Alek Wek to soul singer N'dea Davenport to famed author and editor Deborah Gregory and a host of other contemporary women, Beautiful is a labor of love from one of the most respected contemporary photographers in the fashion industry.
QUOTES FROM THE SUBJECTS take a candid look at how women of color view their bodies and give the reader a provocative glimpse into the world of female body image. This work is alternately passionate and intelligent, inspiring and seductive.
THE CINEMATIC FEEL and documentary style of Marc Baptiste's photography has been featured in Vanity Fair, Allure, Vibe, Essence, Esquire, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, German Vogue, and Untold among others. He currently resides in Brooklyn New York with his wife and twin girls.
