About the Author

Four years ago on a beach in Italy, Nancy Bruno witnessed women of all ages enjoying themselves while completely uninhibited by their bodies. As she strove to understand their comfort and happiness, the idea for Beautiful Women was born.

Award-winning documentary photographer Nancy Bruno uses black and white 35mm photography to capture the triumphs and tragedies of everyday life. She uses her ability to become "invisible" to her subjects as her means of examining and photographing humanity. She lives and works in Upstate New York with her husband and two sons.

By Shirley Priscilla Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 23, 2008
Format: Hardcover
In this work by Nancy Bruno, I found delicate tales of true life, and pictures of intense beauty. No, not the kind that is plastered all over the television, or printed in magazines, but the beauty that life brings; the hidden beauty that we all need to see, and appreciate.
Inside the pages of this book, we are graced to read life experiences from 35-women. The strength, courage, accomplishments of each is the true beauty that shines. The black and white pictures add the visual that completes and satisfies the perfection of this beauty. A reminder of truth for all. Beautiful Women, celebrates the true essence of the pure beauty of women, and brings it forth for all to appreciate and enjoy. A lovely work.

This book is remarkable and uplifting in seeing the beauty in "Average Janes" and telling their stories through both stories and photos. A wonderful gift for women of all ages.
