Los Angeles, CA May 20, 2002 An award-winning photographer specializing in portraits of pregnant women has been selected for inclusion in this years L.A. Nudes photography exhibit. Rachel Jeraffi, whose work celebrates the beauty of women during their pregnancy, will show her work in the provocative exhibit opening July 6, 2002.


Jeraffi's photography shows the special femininity of pregnant women with understated, tasteful compositions and lighting. Her work has been singled out as a Gold Medal winner in the prestigious Creativity Annual, which highlights the best in international graphic design, arts and advertising. She has also been featured on The Learning Channel and in numerous local publications. By appearing in L.A. Nudes, Jeraffi hopes to encourage women to look at their pregnant body in a new way. "In my sessions, I try to make women feel beautiful, to see beyond the discomforts and focus on the miracle that is happening," says Jeraffi. "When those feelings are projected and captured on film, I feel that I have accomplished my goal."


L.A. Nudes is a biennial photography exhibit showcasing photography of nudes by leading photographers in the Los Angeles area. Entries in the exhibit range from elegant classical nudes to sado-masochistic erotica. The exhibit is scheduled to open July 6, 2002 at Photo Impact, 931 N. Citrus Avenue, Hollywood, CA 90028; 323/461-0141.
