BBC Radio Cumbria Interview Victoria about Naked Muse Calendar 2012
41 UK based poets and photographers have united to create a unique charity calendar to raise money for diabetes research. The calendar, dreamt up by Cumbrian Wild Women Press co-founder and poet, Victoria Bennett, after her son was diagnosed with Type One diabetes, features 14 UK nude male poets posing for each month of the year (with an extra month thrown in for all the things one never has time to do!). Each image has been shot by a different female UK photographer. As inspiration for the shoot, the poet and photographer duo were given an individual poem on the theme of ‘the male muse’ which has been donated by a collection of top UK based female poets. The poems will feature alongside each of the images in the final calendar.
