What's Your Best Feature?

If you haven't heard yet about the .5 mm Project from local photographer Keith Clark, you will. Clark, an architect by day, started the project in February with a mission to find and photograph 100 people and their favorite body parts. So far, he's shot arms, legs, eyes, bellies, backs, shoulders, feet, and more. ("It's funny," he says. "I can't believe I haven't had a guy say his penis is his favorite body part yet.") The photos are fun, beautiful, and ultimately, a very telling exploring self-image by focusing on what people like about themselves, instead of what they dislike.

Look for mentions of Keith's project in a June issue of InTake (he photographed several of the editors and writers) and the July Indianapolis Monthly. He's had one gallery approach him about a show and I think a launch party would be a real hoot. But for Keith, it's about the art, the exploration and the people. He's photographed 60-70 subjects so far and looking to finish in the next couple of months. If you're interested in participating, contact Keith Clark though his "subjects" page.

And yes, those are my legs. My favorite body part.

That sounds like a cool project. There are quite a few bloggers who do half-naked thursdays with interesting snapshots of body parts.

(and yes, those are nice legs).

The project sounds cool and I'm thankful no male has yet to say his penis was his favorite part. That would be ridicuously silly to have someone take a picture of.

Yes ma'am those are fantastic legs.
