Yes, Anjou has breast implants. I know a lot of people see this is as a good opportunity to underline their preference for “natural” breasts. Go ahead, you will be duly noted. But when you’re done, please don’t forget to give positive comments to pictures of your liking as well (with or without breasts). It’s always smarter to give clicks and comments to artworks you actually like and thereby increasing their popularity.
Here are my thoughts on the subject: In an ideal world a woman’s choice for or against plastic surgery would be respected either way, but of course that’s not the world we live in. How much of a “free” choice is it really? After all women are under a lot of pressure to conform to some ideal of beauty. It’s a shame. And it gets worse: The pressure is even contradictory. There’s pressure to “get your boobs fixed” and there’s pressure to “not destroy your natural beauty”. No matter how you decide there’s still going to be pressure on you.
In my opinion no woman and no girl owes it to somebody or to society to conform to an ideal or even to look like a model. Let me be clear: You don’t have to look like this. I don’t look like this either. Heck, I’m not even a woman. I’m the photographer, by the way. People never look at me and scream: “Oh my god I’m in love!” Yes, sometimes I wished I had this power but my life turned out pretty okay without it. Maybe you’re even better of admiring beauty than possessing it. I don’t know. Some people believe if they look like a model the pressure will finally go away because they have arrived at the finish line but this is a big illusion. From working with models I know firsthand the pressure gets only worse.
Either way I think we should all be allowed to admire somebody for beautiful looks just as we are free to admire a singer for a great voice. It’s funny how you never hear people say “you reduce someone to an object” if you love a singer’s voice.
If there were “voice implants” to enhance a singer’s performance some people would probably argue if you have an implant you can’t have a beautiful voice – no matter how beautiful you sound! Why? Because you “sinned” against god or nature or whatever the thinking is. That’s not the way I see it. I think natural breasts (yes, I'm still talking about breasts the voice was only a metaphor) are beautiful and I also think Anjou is very beautiful with her implants…
These are just my thoughts and I don't want to force them down anybodies throat. Wow, you’re actually still reading? Thanks! Now I’m looking forward to read your comment.
in every photo of her, she looks confident and at peace with her body. It looks as
though she made a good choice for herself, and her surgeon did a wonderful job
as well. She is lovely. Plain and simple.
But i want to get rewarded for putting my hands down
indeed she look very sexy. love her armpit ^0^
So is her taut belly. Very inviting.
One of the regrets I often experience when looking at your photography is this: I wish I could get to know these young women a little -- not date or anything like that but just meet and converse with them for five minutes or so. They look so attractive and I can't help but wonder of their personality and way of interacting with others is as lovely as their appearance in your photos.
This model is "fiery"...
You might want to try superimposing some strange flames with this model's pix..? Something about her seems to scream "fire"..
I never saw this before in any model.. I don't understand what I'm seeing.. Maybe it's in another close realm..?
the softboxes, obviously.
In my opinion telling her otherwise would be FORCING your "ideal" on to her. The vast majority of us wish to improve our looks in some way it starts with coming your hair to one side and applying some make-up for women and ends with cosmetic surgery, none of that is "natural" beauty! There's no "moral code" which stipulates that we must draw the line at surgery (yes, it's a bigger decision, but it's still HER's to make), it's certain haters attempting to enforce their "values" on to others and constructing imaginary "rules". Do NOT listen to them. The only thing you have to trust (in my opinion) is: does she feel beautify and happy and do you appreciate her beauty and do you feel happy taking the snaps. That's it!
You will get haters of course, especially where sexuality and nudity is concerned, because we live in a society that's sexually repressed and demonizes nudity and sex, due some ancient "traditions", in other words no good reason at all!
And btw, she looks super hot and sexy with her implants (as she would without)! And she sure looks like she's comfortable and happy
From an aesthetic point of view the uniformity of implants bothers me. No woman has equal sized breasts - i don't even have equal sized balls
The technique, the colouring, the lightning of the picture? Outstanding as always, this is why i'm following you: You are a great photographer and a permant inspiration.
All in all: I can't fav this picture, but i will continue to follow you and learn as much as i can.
My Sis is not looking to be a model, yet she felt the need to have her small chest enhanced in her 40's to feel like a 'woman' and I support her decision, even if I would not have advised it. I cannot fully understand what it is to live with the pressures you speak of, so we should try to have compassion and understanding for their outlook given these factors we men do not face. They have to hold their sexuality in a much different way than us with much more grave consequences we could not possibly comprehend.
Breast implants look fake, just like a singer's voice processed through auto-tune sounds fake. Even the "good" boob jobs are bad. Implants just don't respond to gravity like the real thing.
I'll take a flat-chested woman over one with fake boobs any day of the week.
YMMV, as they say.
Now check out the millions of models with natural breasts, is there a need to hate on those with implants?
And to imply that all boob jobs are "bad" makes as much sense as saying orange is better than blue. It's about sense of aesthetics, not gravity, lol.
I assume we can agree that opinions on aesthetics are subjective not objective?
She's very beautiful just the same
I agree with you, sir. Nobody should be subjected to the pressures society puts on them to reach some weird "ideal" conception of beauty is at the moment. No body is perfect from the point of view of thousands of people looking at someone. They see and categorize: 'too skinny', too fat', 'too busty', 'too flat', etc. which pigeon-holes someone into an object of desire or derision depending on their viewpoint. Nobody asks if the model (in this case Anjou) is happy with herself, more confident, or any number of equally valid questions before passing judgement on her, solely on a photograph.
Anjou is a VERY beautiful woman and I would like & enjoy images of her either natural or enhanced.
Just my two cents.
You always find fantastic girls for your photosessions, but your own talent for photgraphy adds something to all your pictures that make them absolutely perfect.
Sometimes, I take inspirations from your pictures to create mines, but I know your high level is quite impossible for me to reach.
You are a very good photographer, making every of your pictures a dream to my eyes.
In the name of all the internet: Thank You!
Other people who aren't models can be very sexy too. With or without adjustments.
Love the pic!
As for the breast thing... If a piece of art was living and it changed itself, not the meaning you have gotten from it but just the character inside shifted positions or something, would you then hate it?
what i really don't like is that pressure you described so well. I can't understand how anybody could feel entitled to tell other people how they should look and what should they do with their body. Specially this thing with breasts. I know for myself, I wear B-cups and of course I have to listen to shit like "you'd look really fine if it wasn't for your small boobs" or "maybe you should do something about that cup size". I understand there's different preferances regarding looks as well as breast size but when my female friends say such things, i just don't understand why. Why do this to friends? to make themselves feel better about their own cup size? to bash others because somebody else bashed them? I'm sure if i had implants, they'd say it doesn't count because I 'bought' it. i can never win, nobody can. in my opinion it would take a lot less effort to simply accept the fact that people are different, they Ž(choose to) look different and they have different size of boobs, that's okay and there's nothing we should be doing about it. BAM. suddenly everybody feels well in their own skin. everybody wins.
so why the constant need to make needless effort and tell everybody (including ourselves) that we're not good enough the way we are?
Moreover, when an artist exposes his artworks on deviantart, he/she expects comments about the artwork and not about the model or her/his implants.
As you probably did not note (too many comments on your photos! ) I've often commented your artwork, sometimes positively, sometimes not so much. But my comments regard and will always regard the results of your ability and of that of your models.
Thank you very much for sharing.
