Laura Dodsworth

Laura’s Kickstarter campaign to finance Bare Reality achieved it’s funding target within one day and the video accompanying the project was viewed 1.5 million times. The project attracted worldwide media coverage. Laura is an award-winning photographer. She lives in Epsom with her husband and two sons.

Bare Reality: 100 women, their breasts, their stories is her first book. She decided to create Bare Reality because she has always been fascinated by the dichotomy between women’s personal lives and how they are depicted in the media; between how they feel about breasts privately and how they are presented for public consumption. She describes Bare Reality as the inevitable result, for her, of being a woman, a feminist and a photographer.

Aside from Bare Reality, she undertakes art photography projects and specialises day to day in photographing people. Her work is always a personal enquiry as much as it is an exploration of people, their loves,  their lives and their place in the world.
