A fashion
photographer is hoping to change the way that society views curvaceous
women, by publishing a book featuring a series of images which celebrate
fuller-figured women. 
New Yorker Victoria Janashvili, the woman behind coffee table book Curves,
has had her work featured by the likes of GQ, Maxim, Esquire and
Cosmopolitan, but insists that her ‘personal projects’ have always aimed
to highlight the beauty of women with more normal bodies, rather than
the slim models often pictured in the pages of magazines.
‘My personal projects have always been aimed to portray a healthy and more relatable model,’ she explains on her Kickstarter page, set up in order to fund the publication of her book, which is currently available for pre-sale.


Let's get real: Victoria Janashvili hopes that Curves will encourage women to feel more confident about their own body image

‘I feel
very happy that the fashion magazines and [the] media in general [have]
started to embrace a healthier image of a “beautiful woman” and that is
why I strongly believe that this art book can help make a change even
more.’
Ms
Janashvili enlisted the help of plus-size models Denise Bidot, who has
featured in campaigns for Nordstrom, Levi’s and Old Navy, and Marina
Bulatkina, who recently modeled for discount fashion store Century 21,
both of whom agreed to pose nude for the book.
‘Even
though the average American woman is a size 14, our society continues
to set sterotypes as standards when it relates to the real body image of
women,’ Ms Janashvili added. 
‘This
is why I spent years of my time taking pictures of different types of
models and took part [in] numerous body image awareness campaigns that
went viral, and caused lots of discussions. 
‘Through
my book, I would like to continue to spread the mission and break
social stereotypes, so we can take a stand on women feeling confident
within their own skin.’

Thus
far, the photographer has raised just over $4,000 since launching her
Kickstarter page two days ago – and she is confident that this total
will continue to rise as more people speak out in support of the
project. 
‘Your
wife, your daughter, your girlfriend, your mother and most importantly
YOU, will look at yourself differently, more [healthily], and more
importantly, less; by expanding, and then reclaiming, the discussion
about appearance, we can remove some of the focus from it in women’s
lives, old and young,’ she writes.
‘We love your booty. Get it behind this book. The future of healthy booties, big and small, may depend on it.’
Ms
Janashvili has been praised by women from around the world as a result
of the book, with many hailing her as an ‘inspiration’ to people of all
ages and body types.  
'I feel better about my body now': The book has had support from women around the world, including a 62-year-old grandmother from Puerto Rico who praised Ms Janashvili the perfect role model

‘As someone who is considered plus size, your work is simply breathtaking,’ one woman wrote. 
‘Seeing women feel as beautiful as they do in your photographs inspires me more than you could imagine.’
Another
added: ‘I am a 62-year-old grandmother, who lives in Puerto Rico. Today
I was thinking I didn’t want to die without having some sexy pictures
taken.
‘I
never had the nerve to do it while I was young because I was always
self conscious about my body, even when I was beautiful and skinny. 
‘But looking at your photographs and how gorgeous the models look I feel better about my body.’
