29 jan 2017 – A brave Alton Towers rollercoaster crash amputee has posed naked at a Manchester photography studio to inspire women with disabilities and low self-esteem. Vicky Balch took part in the tasteful photo shoot at Andrew Wood Photography after struggling with self-confidence and trolling on social media and hopes to ‘challenge what society regards as sexy’.

The 21-year-old was on the Smiler rollercoaster carriage crash in June 2015 and was so badly crushed that she lost her right leg. Ryan Lea, studio manager at the studios in Chorlton, praised Vicky’s bravery and said she has been an ‘amazing inspiration’ to other people. He told the M.E.N: “It was a pleasure having her in. She’s a lovely girl and we were so surprised that she dared to do it. “We didn’t want it to be glamour or trashy or obscene, we wanted it to be really tasteful and show off her body shape. “It was amazing to see how confident she was during the shoot. She was clearly so comfortable and loved every minute of it.

“The pictures have come out really well and are tastefully done.” It is the second time Vicky has been photographed at the studios on Barlow Moor Road after being encouraged by her best friend to visit last year. She took part in the boudoir photoshoot without her new bionic leg and felt empowered after seeing the pictures. Ryan said: “When Vicky came in she was really nervous, not sure what to expect and really panicking. She didn’t have a lot of confidence at all and started off wearing the prosthetic leg on. However in the first 10 or 15 minutes she felt comfortable enough to do it without it. Her confidence went from zero to really high. “After that she viewed the pictures and was crying her heart out.

“You could tell she didn’t think that’s how she looked and it was a great confidence booster for her. “The response to the pictures was amazing. We have had so many ladies come in just off the back of that including women who have suffered domestic violence, illness and body confidence issues. “Ladies can come in and be something different for the day and Vicky is a really good ambassador for that.” Vicky said she was so devastated after losing her right leg she struggled to see any future. She also ­battled to accept her changed body and was so self-conscious that she ­struggled to be intimate with boyfriends and allow them to see her naked.

Speaking to the Sunday People , she said: “I’ve had to learn to completely love my body all over again. I don’t think I’ll ever come to terms with what’s ­happened, but I love my body as it is. “I call them my battle scars and I’ve had to accept them. I don’t care who sees them now. I’ve been through a hell of a lot and that shows it. “The photographer asked me if I wanted them edited out of the pictures and I said, ‘No’. I’m not changing them. They’re part of me now. After the last photoshoot an 18-year-old girl with ­terminal cancer contacted me to say she thinks it’s amazing that I’m showing my scars off.

“I don’t think what’s happened to me can even compare to her and it makes me feel great that I’ve helped someone. I expect I will get trolled again, but I won’t let it affect me. “I know I’m doing it for a greater good. If I can show my scars off and it helps one person then it’s worth a thousand horrible messages or tweets. I am doing it for attention, but it’s not about me.” Alton Towers owner Operator Merlin Attractions was fined £5 million after admitting health and safety breaches over the crash.

Alton Towers crash victim: “I once wanted to kill myself but now I’m so proud of my body, I’m baring all”

28 jan 2017 – Alton Towers rollercoaster crash victim Vicky Balch today poses confidently for all the world to see and says: “I want to challenge what society regards as sexy.” Our thought-provoking pictures mark a dramatic turnaround for the 21-year-old beauty who was so devastated after losing her right leg she struggled to see any future.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday People Vicky confessed: “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t consider suicide at my lowest points. “In the beginning especially, there were days when I didn’t want to be here any more. “I’d think, ‘What’s the point? I’m not going to be able to live my life to the full or love my life ever again’.” But now Vicky feels confident enough to lay her scars bare, literally, and pose naked to inspire others and show that being different can be attractive too. She said: “It doesn’t matter what you look like, there will always be someone who finds you attractive.” Vicky was seriously injured when the Smiler rollercoaster at the Staffordshire theme park crashed into a stationary carriage in June 2015.

Both she and another passenger, 19-year-old Leah Washington, were so ­badly crushed they lost a leg. Another 15 people were injured. Vicky admits she ­battled to accept her changed body and was so self-conscious she ­struggled to be intimate with boyfriends and allow them to see her naked. She said: “I have been intimate since the ­accident but it was difficult, ­especially when I wasn’t happy with my body because I’d been so body-confident before.

“It wasn’t nice really because I didn’t feel sexy. I was very self-conscious and very aware. It brings the mood down and I’d prefer the lights off.” Vicky has had three short-term boyfriends since the accident, two she knew already through mutual friends and one she met on dating app Tinder, but none of them lasted more than a couple of months.

The fashion-loving former beauty ­student admits: “In hindsight the first ­relationship was definitely too soon ­because I wasn’t at all happy with myself. “I’ve had to learn to completely love my body all over again. I don’t think I’ll ever come to terms with what’s ­happened, but I love my body as it is. “I call them my battle scars and I’ve had to accept them. “I don’t care who sees them now. I’ve been through a hell of a lot and that shows it.

“The photographer asked me if I wanted them edited out of the pictures and I said, ‘No’. I’m not changing them. They’re part of me now.” Last year Vicky, of Grimsargh, near Preston, Lancs, took part in a ­tasteful photoshoot to rebuild her confidence and was met with social media bullying.

With the new photos – taken at Andrew Wood Photography, Manchester – exposing the stump and scars where her right leg was amputated, she hopes to inspire ­others even if she gets trolled again. Vicky said: “After the last photoshoot an 18-year-old girl with ­terminal cancer contacted me to say she thinks it’s amazing that I’m showing my scars off. “I don’t think what’s happened to me can even compare to her and it makes me feel great that I’ve helped someone. I expect I will get trolled again, but I won’t let it affect me.

“I know I’m doing it for a greater good. If I can show my scars off and it helps one person then it’s worth a thousand horrible messages or tweets. I am doing it for attention, but it’s not about me.” Her mum Karen was shocked by the latest nude shots but only ­because she’s not used to seeing her daughter without her new £60,000 bionic leg. Vicky still keeps in touch with ­fellow amputee Leah Washington, from Barnsley, South Yorks, Leah’s boyfriend Joe Pugh and Vicky’s pal Daniel Thorpe, 28. And last year Vicky returned to the scene of the accident. She said: “It’s very unlikely I’ll ever go on a ride again, but I haven’t got a phobia of them.”

Alton Towers was fined £5million for the accident. Vicky has no ill feelings towards the people in charge of operating the Smiler ride on the day. She says: “It must be horrible to live with it. They weren’t trained properly and that isn’t their fault.” Instead of dwelling on the ­accident, Vicky is looking to the future. She said: “I’d like to do TV ­presenting. I want to make a ­difference. I’m never going to be the carefree girl I once was, but I’m a lot stronger for it and I want to inspire others.” And she is still hopeful she will find love. She says: “Ideally I would prefer to meet someone the old-fashioned way in real life in a bar. “But sometimes people don’t know how to approach me. “I’m still a normal person, I’m just missing half a leg.”

Herzele wil geen blote Boon-vrouwen

Fotografe Phaedra Schelpe kreeg de opdracht een eigen interpretatie te brengen van Boons Feminatheek en maakte onder meer deze foto’s.

HERZELE – De organisatoren van Lezen in de Lente, een artistiek project rond auteur Louis Paul Boon die dit jaar honderd jaar geworden zou zijn, krijgen geen toelating van het Herzeelse schepencollege om hun eigen interpretatie van Boons Feminatheek tentoon te stellen. Fotografe Phaedra Schelpe maakte naaktfoto’s van 26 dames en wou die ophangen in de bomen op de centrale Groenlaan. ‘Een preutse reactie van het gemeentebestuur’, vindt organisator Filip De Bodt.

Burgemeester Van Tittelboom zegt dat hij de combinatie van kermis op het plein en naaktfoto’s niet ziet zitten. ‘Bovendien zijn de bomen wettelijk beschermd.’
