Naked Shame!

I took these photos to represent how we are forced by society to hide away the human body. For those who are comfortable with the naked human body, we’re often treated as if it’s something shameful, or even worse, something disgusting. We can be treated like perverts for simply enjoying the pleasure of being free from clothes, to swim naked in the sea, or sit quietly in a park, or to enjoy the human form in art.
Surely the real perversion is to be offended by the human body!
I find that attitude offensive!

 

Forced to hang my hang head in naked shame!

Hiding my shameful nakedness!

Agonising over being forced to hide my nakedness!

Contemplating the great shame of my nudity!

Is my nakedness really so bad? Will society ever let me be free?

Is my nakedness really so bad?
Will society ever let me be free?

About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
