TURNERS FALLS — A Turners Falls photographer is going viral with a new project where women are posing nude with a strategically placed mock ballot in protest of Donald Trump’s remarks about women.

The campaign, called #GrabHimByTheBallot, is in response to the now infamous comments the Republican presidential nominee made in a 2005 video, where he made lewd remarks about women and said “Grab them by the p***y.”

Anja Schütz, the photographer who organized the project, has already photographed several women and is holding an event on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to take more photos in the series.

Her Facebook post about the project, with the first two subjects, has already been shared more than 220 times in less than 24 hours.

On her Facebook page, she calls for women who are “Anti-Trump and happy to have it known.”

The women in the photos are nude, with an American flag in the backdrop.

Schütz said in the post that the choice of nudity had to do with the politicization of women’s bodies. She said she is looking for all body types, ages and backgrounds.
