Photographer Logan Norton is currently raising funds on Kickstarter for Fort Ord: Beauty, a book that celebrates different facets of womanhood and femininity.
Norton told that he was originally inspired by the architecture of Fort Ord, an abandoned military base in California. When began to think about models to shoot at the location, he realized how limited his views on femininity were.
"My immediate response was to have a series of images of young, thin, tall, 'pretty' women in soft, earthy, flowing wardrobe, with long hair, pastel, soft makeup set against the harsh backdrop of the old military base," he told. "I began to understand that this concept was a direct result of the popular culture imagery I had been inundated with for most of my life. That was just how I viewed femininity."
Norton sought out 109 women "from all walks of life" to photograph at Fort Ord, encouraging them to express their femininity however they saw fit.
"I wanted to make this project into one that combated this predisposition through the inclusion of women from all backgrounds with looks that didn't fall into this stereotype," he told.
