Birthday Suits.

Thanks to brilliant Kateoplis, I now know that Lucy Hilmer, a photographer and poet who recently turned 70, has shot a portrait of herself in nothing but underwear and her shoes and socks on every birthday for the past four decades. (You can find them here.)

There's a book and a film about this project currently in the works, which, Lucy writes, "will reveal how a woman who came of age before women's lib used her camera to peel off society's 'pretty girl' label and define herself from the inside out." Hero.
