These Sexually Charged Photos of a 55-YO Mother Might Make You Uncomfortable

And that's the point.

Most twenty-somethings would cringe at the idea of their mom posing for a Playboy style pin-up series, but that's exactly what Natalie Krick from Chicago asked her mother to do in the photo project titled Natural Deceptions.

Wearing racy outfits, wigs, and gaudy make-up, 55-year-old Candace Krick bravely posed for a number of harshly lit photographs, which she and her daughter find "hilarious." But Natalie knows, thanks to critics who assume she's trying to actually document her mother, the images can make others feel uneasy. "I think that some of the pictures make them uncomfortable – like, this is an older woman being sexualized." 

Natalie explained to NewYork Magazine how she hopes her images offer insight to how society view woman as they age. "I photograph to portray beauty as artificial, flawed, threatening, psychological, seductive and garish," she stated.

Here are some of the images from Natural Deceptions.
