It’s amazing that Debbie’s and my book, Women En Large: Images of Fat Nudes, is celebrating its 23rd anniversary this month. The work continues to be displayed internationally and the book continues to sell.

And unfortunately it is as relevant now as it was then.

Tracy Blackstone and Debbie Notkin

To look in the mirror and see yourself, all of yourself, and to be pleased and satisfied. Should it be an impossible dream? Or is it something we all, each and every one of deserve?
‑‑ Debbie Notkin

Chupoo Alafonte

When I think of what it means to be a fat black woman, I think of my ancestors, women at the lowest rung of society, who were forced to serve, nurture, and give birth to a nation that hates and fears people who look like me.
— Chupoo Alafonté

Queen T’hisha and Robyn Brooks

I decided that I was never again going to allow someone to victimize me because of my size. Furthermore, I decided to enjoy myself the way I was. I have a voluptuous body and a very sensual nature. I’m creative, intelligent, charming, and lush. What’s not to like?
‑‑ April Miller

 

Rhylorien n’a Rose

I am not what others think of me. I am what I think of me. My body may be fat and physically challenged, but I am strong and beautiful … Right now.
— Rhylorien n’a Rose

 

Edna Rivera

I didn’t grow up with the belief that fat women were to be despised. The women in my family were fat, smart, sexy, employed, wanted, married, and the rulers of their households.
‑‑ Queen T’hisha

After a lifetime of hiding, you can imagine how hard it is to come out and say, “Hey! Look at me,” in a way where no one can fail to really see me.

I’ll be back blogging this coming week. I’m back from my travels. The Sierra Nevada mountains are stunningly beautiful. I hadn’t seen big mountains in way too long. I grew up on granite and I didn’t realize til this trip that I miss it.

So, here is this week’s photo from Women en Large: Images of Fat Nudes.
