Me In My Place ® - beautiful women at home

Real women in their own place.  Not too crazy and just a pinch of naughty…

By creating evocative and alluring portraits of women with body types that have traditionally been left out of mainstream media, Me In My Place is redefining a genre that has been over-run with unrealistic expectations of what it means to be beautiful.  With full acceptance of the “male gaze”, the images promote not just acceptance, but also an aspirational message about everyday appeal.  The project is a celebration and is meant to be fun and open to all.

In an effort to monetize the project to keep it going, we created a simple mobile web app, more commonly called THE MIMP APP (https://mimp.findrow.com).  This gave fans of the project a simple and inexpensive way to show support.  In exchange, they receive more images, exclusive images that are not on the tumblr, and the ability to quickly view and ‘like’ their favorite content.

The MIMP APP was such a success, we decided there must be other content providers like us who would like to give their fans something extra, so we created FINDROW.  With flexibility that Instagram and Facebook won’t allow, we give our content providers the freedom to express themselves as they see fit… even if that is not always safe for work ;-)  Again, they control their own content and are leading the conversation about how they feel beautiful in the world.  For a complete list of all the Findrow apps, click here.

As part of an ongoing series, Caity Lotz shot by MeInMyPlace for Esquire Magazine.

"I was a football cheerleader, I guess. After my sophomore year I started working up in L.A., and then I was the hugest loner. I was ditching school to come audition. And I was always so tired, so I would go sleep during lunchtime in my teacher’s room. I was so over high school. Then I finished off at this school where you only go once a week. I graduated with my class, but I was barely going anymore.”

The latest MeInMyPlace shoot for Esquire.  Appologies for the commercials… but work your way through it, I think you’ll enjoy it.  I’ll be posting more images of Caity today, but in the meantime, check out the video… super cute!

Big thanks to the crew over at Esquire for putting this together.  You guys rock!

"Who is she? She’s the only woman Don Draper could never get. Remember last season on Mad Men, when he goes back to California and kind of gives that look that Don Draper gives, like this befreckled, sunshiney Berkeley girl could teach him something but he’s scared of what it might be? That’s the kind of effect Caity Lotz has on people. At least she did on our photographer friend, who has shot ten women now for Esquire.com — and many more for the phenomenon that is Me in My Place — and had a hard time not calling her the most fun yet. And she can dance! —The Editors”
