In the history of art, there are abundant nudes of all types, but from a contemporary perspective they have become less numerous, their innocence almost entirely disappeared. With photography’s establishment as an art form, other ways of seeing have emerged that look at the body beyond its sexual, sensual, or even aesthetic connotations. The pictures in this edition break through the stereotypes to rediscover real beauty, where the idea of the photographer and model is an anachronism. With an essay by Sergio Rubira, portfolios by Jorge Fuembuena, Naomi Harris, Paul Kooiker, Malerie Marder and Cheryl Sourkes, and contributions by more than fifteen exemplary artists.
