“It is an intimate diary with the first seven heroines of the @women.body.acceptance project, which in my head was created as a photo book, but in the meantime engaged dozens of other amazing women. The idea was born out of the need to discover my own femininity, the love for the beauty of all women’s bodies and the need to investigate why so few of us accept our body.

It is a publication presenting stories and photos of women with whom I talked about body acceptance, individual approach to the topic of femininity, intimacy and the perception of the female body by society. It is also a journal with my thoughts and notes that I have been keeping for two years. There’s a ten years difference between each of the heroines- the youngest Maja is 18, the eldest - my grandmother, 82. In this way, I wanted to find out whether the body acceptance changes with age.

I have been working on this project for two years now and it’s fully designed by me, starting from the concept and idea to photos, graphics and typography All photos in the book are made on color and black and white 35 and 120 film. The cover is linen and screen printed.”
