Overview

The third in a series of unique and startling collections of photographs depictingordinary people first clothed, then completely naked. After the success of Naked New York and Naked Los Angeles, Greg Friedler has traveled to London, where he was filmed for national television while taking pictures of people from all walks of life, both dressed and in the nude. The result is a pair of juxtaposed images for each person photographed, with only their profession and age given as a caption. Ultimately, all subjects are equally vulnerable in revealing their unclothed, private selves. In presenting them to us in this most elemental human state, Friedler's documentary-style photography emphasizes the traits we share rather than our incongruities.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A documentary-style, b&w photographic presentation of dozens of volunteers, taken both dressed and naked (a term the photographer distinguishes from the pornographic "nude"), with only their profession and age provided as caption. The author's aim is to present people in their most elemental human state in order to emphasize common traits rather than incongruities. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
