Canada Not as Prudish as US
The Star Phoenix reports that a controversial book "deemed too risqué by American publishers" has found a publisher in Canada. Bodies and Souls: The Century Project is a collection of 98 nude portraits of women shown in chronological order from birth to almost 100 years old. The Century Project is the work of U.S. photographer Frank Cordelle. The show has been exhibited for 14 years. The images depict "real" women, not nude models and the portraits are captioned with statements -- many from the women themselves. Proponents of the project see value in showing realistic photos of women.
