Anderson, who has a degree in broadcast journalism from Brigham Young University, spoke to me recently about the project. I want to show different facets and perspectives. Our bodies go through transformations: they age, they droop, they sag, they wrinkle, they weaken and get sick. Mormon doctrine is a very embodied doctrine. But I think that this project is about pushing both of those aside and showing the reality of a female body.

Mormon women bare more than just their testimonies
I am missing women over So even as I grew up Mormon in small-town Ohio, I came from a background that normalized bodies from an artistic and medical point of view. People try to stigmatize breastfeeding and I used photographs of women nursing their babies to normalize it. I have women in their 20s, I have women in their 30s; I have women in the 40s.
