(Note to Administrators: This page is maintained primarily by Malcolm Gin for purposes of providing an index to the category of images it refers to. Please do not delete this page without first notifying Malcolm Gin. Since building support for the project and adding photo sets to the category has proven to be a long and arduous project, this page and its associated category may go for long stretches without update. If it is decided that these images/this category/this project is not suited to the Commons, please come to that consensus and let Malcolm Gin know and he will host it privately.)

About the Body Morphology Project[edit]

The Body Morphology Project's aim is to provide a Commons-hosted repository of free images for use by any organization that wishes to compare the body anatomy of the participants. As long as the image store is relatively small, the uses are not easy to imagine, but if we can provide enough images of a large enough cross section of average bodies, the project may be of use to activist organizations (especially those about body image and related issues), doctors, nurses, patients, other health-care related professionals and organizations, political and civil rights organizations, etc.

Body Morphology Project page[edit]

This page is built to provide as helpful as possible a central repository for indexing Body Morphology Project images against extant metadata about each subject.

Photosets[edit]

Each photo set is a set of about 10 standard poses (additional poses may also help - see project page for details) for a particular subject. Subject metadata includes a subject serial number (kept to track model release forms and other administrative data per subject), subject age, subject height, subject weight and any additional relevant (to appearance, body type, etc.) medical notes the subject wishes to share.
