The Life Ball 2014 advertisement showcases Carmen completely nude, basking in an atmosphere that is reminiscent of the Garden of Earthly Delights (which is a famous 15th-16th century painting by the artist Hieronymus Bosch). The Life Ball promotional material is displayed in two different versions: one version with female genitalia and one with male genitalia (continue through the article to view the uncensored images).
The tagline on the poster, "Ich bin Adam. Ich bin Eva. Ich bin ich," translates to "I'm Adam, I'm Eve, I'm Me." Carmen's words of wisdom and her commitment to the expression of positive body image inspire us. Carmen had this to say about the Life Ball ad:
Your gender should not matter in your heart or in the way you express your personality... We shouldn’t be afraid to stick to a model, because there are so many types of diverse people on this planet. My message is: beauty has no gender. At the end of the day beauty is beauty.
Gender lines are blurred and every person is unique in how they see themselves," David LaChapelle explains. "For me the body is more than something to be looked at as an object of sexual gratification. The body is a beautiful housing for the soul that we are celebrating in this picture.
