Matt Blum - The NuProject

"The Nu Project is a series of nudes of normal people. The project was started by Minneapolis-based photographer Matt Blum in 2005. Matt has since continued to develop the project staying true to his original vision: no models, no makeup and no glamour." Here what we can read on his site welcome page (here). And it is exactly what is said. I had these pictures stored in my computer for a while now but I always found something more urgent to post. Tonight, the cheer simplicity of these women showing without any artifice what they are is a consolation. This simplicity is not common in France. Unfortunately. This projects lacks a strong underlying semantic and visual strenght but is still interesting and deserves to feature here between bleaker and darker series.
