For women, aging brings with it an inner grace and beauty that is more than skin deep. From birth to old age, women transition through many physical, psychological, and emotional phases that are recorded on their faces. Feminine Transitions: A photographic celebration of natural beauty is a refreshing and inspiring, full-color photography book. Its pages present a series of portraits that reveal the elegance and subtly honest beauty of female faces between the ages of 7 weeks and 103 years. Author and photographer Alyscia Cunningham has truly unmasked the natural beauty of aging. “In a world filled with ‘Photoshopped’ images of women who are heavily made up, this book is a breath of fresh air,” says Trista Hendren, author of The Girl God and writer at the blog Elephant Journal. The process of photographing the portraits for the book turned out to be a transition for Alyscia. “I simply wanted to put together a body of work that fosters a woman’s love for herself and encourages women to believe in their own beauty, despite the signs of aging,” says Alyscia. “But as I looked through my lens, I couldn’t see the women. All I could see was their makeup. Their masks.” Alyscia then made the decision that all of her subjects remove their makeup for their portraits. That was when the book project really took shape. The importance of a woman’s “natural” beauty took center stage. Feminine Transitions unmasks women and exquisitely demonstrates that young is beautiful, old is beautiful, and natural is beautiful. Author Bio: An author and an accomplished photographer who has contributed to such outlets as National Geographic, Discovery Channel, America Online and the Smithsonian Institution, Alyscia Cunningham graduated from Montgomery College with degrees in photography and web design. She has exhibited her photography throughout Washington, DC, Maryland and New Orleans, LA. Her photographs have been published in several books including The Best of Photography 2011, Beauty Around Us, Endless Journeys and Homes of Color Magazine Alyscia’s goal for the near future is to shoot still for cinematographers and work in commercial portraiture. After the production of Feminine Transitions, Alyscia plans to publish other photography books on other subjects of femininity.
