Realistic look at body image

October 24, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Real women, realistic figures. Dozens of women proudly reveal all in the new book by Rosanne Olson, "This Is Who I Am: Our Beauty in All Shapes and Sizes."

About the book:
Rosanne Olson's gorgeous and unconventionally beautiful photo book, This is Who I Am-our beauty in all shapes and sizes features portraits of fifty-four very different women -- ages nineteen to ninety-five -- who share two things in common: they are courageous enough to pose for intimate studio photographs and they are refreshingly candid when talking about their bodies in the accompanying text. These portraits speak the truth to both America's obsession of feminine perfection and to the way real women -- with real bodies and real lives -- look.

"This is an absolutely wonderful book," said Kate Winslet. "Every woman needs to see it! It has made me feel inspired, exhilarated, normal, and beautiful."
