Henry Hargreaves is a New York-based photographer and apparently a breast lover. That came out really wrong, but seriously, what wouldn’t, as Hargreaves is known for his interest in female breasts -again, really wrong.
The photographer loves his subject so much, he got the idea of creating a more “real” version of it through his photography. Not only did he create a series of 3D images of boobs, but he also featured them into a book titled 3DD, for anyone interested.
“The temptation was to write a long piece justifying our creation of 3DD. We could have thrown in some academic analysis on the prominent role of the nude in the history of art and elaborate on the ways that 3DD advances that canon. We might have pointed out that the beautiful images of natural breasts in all shapes and sizes are a wonderful celebration of real women in all their glory. Or we could have reveled in the universal truth that looking and talking about boobs is just a lot of fun,” he explains.
