A loving depiction of a plus-sized subject, April Flores, from her husband, Carlos Batts.

Recently, photographers have been taking pictures of regular, everyday people in the nude, proclaiming that every body is beautiful, blemishes and all. While it’s certainly true, as a trend, it’s become a bit tiresome. Avoiding the feel of “been-there-done-that,” Rare Bird Books' new publication Fat Girl highlights erotic entertainer April Flores, and it’s a loving depiction of a plus-sized subject from her equally loving husband and photographer, Carlos Batts. But instead of the usual photographic tropes featuring black-and-white images of the model looking off into the distance, seemingly at ease with her body and surroundings, this collection of pictures is as edgy as it is artistic. Because Batts and Flores are married, their relationship adds a certain dimension to the photos you wouldn’t ordinarily see or think about otherwise. Coagula Curatorial exhibits photographs from "Fat Girl," with everything from casual and spontaneous Polaroids to professional sets with backdrops and props, with the one constant being Flores’ beauty taking center stage.
