Suds and Smiles by Samantha Fortenberry
Samantha Fortenberry created the ongoing series Suds and Smiles for which she portrayed different types of people in a bathtub. She asked her subjects to collect an array of items that mean something to them or she designed them a set based on an idea of their choosing. With the series, she also wanted to display the nude human body in a natural and beautiful way. Fortenberry states: "I want to collect a wide variety of people in all shapes and sizes to display the various form of beauty each person has"].
