I'm one of those feminists who came to the word late in the game and is now trying to make up for lost time. I have dabbled in not shaving my legs, buying lots of vibrators, and accusing people of "mansplaining" at parties. I know I'm boxing myself in by only trying stereotypical feminist activities so far, but cut me some slack.
When she began taking photos ten years ago her own self-doubt almost got the better of her. He was so horrified, bless him. I was just wondering if I could use this house?
To snap or not to snap? That is the question when it comes to nudes, I mean. There's nothing wrong with sending a tantalizing pic of yourself to bae while they're at the library cramming for finals — for moral support, of course — or just for your own safekeeping.
Even as a professional model, nude portraiture is a sensitive, intimate experience. To ensure a successful and comfortable shoot, there needs to be a delicate rapport between artist and model on set. Communication is an artform, a powerful connection that most photographers have yet to comprehend.
For Naked WomenLondon-based photographer Nadia Lee Cohen takes a bold approach to body positivity, shooting nude portraits of dozens of women of varied shapes and sizes bearing it all for her camera. Inspired in part by campaigns like Free the Nipplea movement seeking to end discriminatory censorship of the female body, as well as recent Instagram activists who have used the platform to protest bans on parts of the female anatomy, Cohen approached friends who she felt radiated self-assurance and individuality. Other women who participated in the project responded to casting calls sent out by the artist over social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Warning : Lets start this tutorial with a warning. This post is about Nude Photography and does cover a topic that some may find offensive. At first I thought she was joking but she was quite serious.
Girls getting undressed for "the gram" is a relatively new and complicated phenomenon. As with all the most important cultural conversations that happen inthis one can summarized by a meme. The meme in question is one of those "classical art memes"; it's a split screen image, with our painted heroine lying on a chaise longue. The below image is the same girl but in this instance, she's nude.
The image came to Brooklyn-based photographer Lauren Renner during a nap. We recently asked her more about the project. What made you decide to undertake this project?
I am my own worst critic when it comes to my body. I've wasted years conducting daily appraisals in the mirror and cruelly judging my trouble areas. So when a photographer friend mentioned that a colleague of hers was working on a series of nude portraits of women over 40, I knew what I had to do: Pose in the altogether. Confront reality.
