The Nude - Portraits

There's a undeniable power to a portrait that is made even stronger by merging of it with nudity. Clothed portraits can be evocative and perhaps tell you more about a person's image and status in life but nothing comes as close to being "about" a person as a nude portrait. The simple fact that you are looking at a nude photo creates a charged situation for some but in these images, where they are about a person rather than a body, there is something far more.

 

The amazing quality of nude portraits is that they are little different from conventional portraits - it is the face and the eyes which hold the attention; the nudity of the individual simply informs the reading of the image. The expected vulnerability in a nude portrait often is supplanted by an inherent confidence that is hard to deny - standing nude and looking into a camera is not something for the faint of heart.
