In a time where we so often see photos of celebrities Photoshopped into perfection, it’s refreshing to see the work of German photographer, Peter Lindbergh. Not only does he avoid retouching his photos, he also prefers to capture his models without any makeup on, capturing only their natural beauty.

“I wanted to portray women not in terms of their perfection, but through their feelings and emotions. That’s why I called this edition of the Calendar Emotional: not some artificial perfection, but the real world and the emotions that well up behind the faces of these women,” Lindbergh said.

The calendar features 14 beloved actresses, including Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, and Uma Thurman. The photos perfectly show that beauty isn’t about youth and perfection, as portrayed in the mass media, but about the raw feelings and emotions within. Take a look at the stunning photos below.
