This is the eighth installment of the Body Diversity Stories from the models who participated in the Social Outreach Seattle Body Diversity Project. Meet Mary Flake.
Body Diversity Exhibit, happened by chance.
My wife, Aretha Alexander, was having her photo taken by Richard Woods for this SOSea forum. I thought that I was coming along for moral support. What happened though is that Richard made us both feel so comfortable during this scantily clad shoot, that I volunteered to start taking off my clothes. The question Richard was asking of his models was this, “What is it about your body that makes you uncomfortable or that you like the least?”. My body issue is that getting older has come with an army of skin tags. All it took was three photographs, Richard had found what he was looking for.
The outcome of these shoots was a wonderful, inclusive exhibit. I am glad to have been a part of it.
