This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.

UPDATE ON CLAYGATE: I don’t know if this represents a caving on the part of Facebook, or merely an oversight, and I certainly don’t know if it’s an “our voices were heard, hizzah!” thing, but the model depicted in the sculpture has just tried reposting the image to her account for a third time, and this time it wasn’t taken down. So for now… a provisional hizzah! And thanks for getting cheesed off with me!

White women’s feminisms still center around equality…. Black women’s feminisms demand justice. There is a difference. One kind of feminism focuses on the policies that will help women integrate fully into the existing American system. The other recognizes the fundamental flaws in the system and seeks its complete and total transformation.

Swiss mountaineering photographer Robert Bösch (previously featured here) and Swiss mountaineering outfitter Mammut (previously featured here) make an awesome creative team. In collaboration with groups of impressively skilled and daring mountain climbers, they’ve produced some truly jaw-dropping photos.

The top photo is their most recent creation, a work of spectacular coordination and photographic skill. Shot on the famous Matterhorn in the Pennine Alps, a group of climbers positioned red lights to illuminate the route taken by English explorer Edward Whymper and his team back in 1865 when they became the first people to ascend the Matterhorn.

"…the planning and coordination that was required for this image was nothing short of astounding. Working against time and weather, Bösch and the team toiled endlessly to ensure they captured the best possible results that properly honored those who travelled the mountains before and inspired those who hope to in the future.”
