The choices in life are never easy. Even the small ones can effect the entire course and ultimate outcome of our lives. But choices artists face when creating art are even harder because nothing will force them to make the right ones. If they choose wrong their work will be crap, but people may still like it and be willing to pay for it. (See the entire realm of abstract art.) Meanwhile the only real reward for the artist with the courage to make the right choices is beauty. Ruthless selectivity is therefore quite rare, even among dedicated artists. Even rarer are the artists whose choice is to create a view of the world that is full of hope, beauty, and happiness. Creating such a view, the kind of sense of life that we here at Body in Mind adore, requires incredible integrity. Artists must resist the temptation to corrupt their images with elements that please the senses but not the mind, with something they saw on TV, or with settings that reflect the world as it really is instead of the way it could be with a little extra effort. Renowned British beauty photographer, Laurie Jeffery, makes the effort. Acclaimed for the beauty of his work in print, television and video, Laurie Jeffery succeeds where most have failed. He creates uniquely beautiful images of a world where we want to live, a world where pretty women feel perfectly natural and safe being naked and admired, right smack dab in our daily lives, in any setting. We love Jeffery's work because it demonstrates simply that a nude woman in any setting is not improper. It says the world should be a place where such a scene would be considered perfectly natural. It says that the men and women who admire her are good, not bad. It says female beauty is not naughty, but nice. This might sound like an easy choice but with the entire world howling about the evils of female beauty it is not only the rarest choice, it's an heroic one. We hope you'll make that choice too. And we hope lovely Lissy Cunningham can make it one of the easiest decisions you'll ever make.
