We cannot help but share this incredible compliation of photographs by Alyscia Cunningham. She recently published Feminine Transitions, a photography book that highlights unaltered portraits of women of all ages and ethnicities coupled with beautiful, empowering words. In a recent article in the Huffington Post, Unretouched Portraits Illustrate 19 Bare, Bold And Beautiful Women, Cunningham said, ‘”I yearned to create something that actually celebrated girls and women in their natural state. It is my hope that this series empowers little girls to know they are beautiful just as they are.” With a broader message that “liberates aging women from hiding behind their make-up and hair color and reminds every senior woman who feels that her wrinkles are a negative reminder of growing older, that each line is a story map of her soul and her wisdom.”’
