Was the model actually anorexic or just genetically thin?

you can't be THAT thin and call it genetics. In any case, this is a disease, whether it is anorexia or maybe a side effect of another disease.

I'm pretty sure that someone who was battling anorexia wouldn't want to pose for a picture having to deal with it. It's a very big deal to the victim.

I think the picture is powerful, even if the subject isn't anatomically perfect or an actual anorexia victim.

Yes! When you are struggeling with an eating disorder, it's hard to believe that you are not the only one.
The thing that's quite bad is that some anorectic thinks it's weak to get healthy..

I've never gone through anorexia, per say, but I do have an anxiety disorder, and I know what it feels like to have to go through routines, or think you can't stop, or feel afraid that something might happen. Kudos to the ones that can get through it, like I do.

i also have an anxiety disorder, and i naturally have no appetite. so i know how it is to have trouble with food-- but i was never anorexic or bulemic. fortunately my current medication for my insomnia gives me a hearty appetite, and now food tastes wonderful-- food never used to "taste"... and now to eat is an amazing thing.

Sorry to hear about your sruggle. I believe the start for many anorectic uses eating to tkae control. And when you manage to make your brain focus 100% on food and calories, you don't think about the stuf you canæt handle in life.

I like the idea, but it seems as though you simply got a skinny female who was relatively flat chested, and can suck her abdomen in. I think it would have a harsher impact with an actual anorexic model, but that is all up to you. I am just saying that it looks very obvious that she is not anorexic, and if she is she is a pretty healthy one compared to what I have seen.

Maybe, I can't tell. I was a completely different person when I wrote that and I don't even know where I was going with it. I think it was the triceps maybe that gave me the impression she couldn't be skinny enough to be anorexic. I don't know.

So I'm going to repeat every one on this.
Great concept :]
But really it is a powerful picture.
It means a lot to me.
Like not in a weird way but like I had gone through that and it was pretty bad...
So its like it makes me strong saying I won't go through again.
It is truly a beautiful picture.
