There is something intrinsically surreal about masked nudes. Everything is displayed but we are deprived of the one thing that enables us to identify an individual human.
In any photograph there is an element of voyeurism when the subject looks away from the camera. We are unseen observers of a private moment. When the model looks to the camera there is an element of connection. Our relationship with the subject becomes more intimate. She is challenging the viewer, identifying us even though we cannot identify her. We are unmasked. Read The Nude in Photography
A downloadable collection of explicitly erotic masked nudes
Creative Nude Photography shows you how to go beyond the norms of conventional glamour. The book contains sections on the concept, but is it art plus practical advice on finding models and camera techniques. The final section shows examples of creative nude projects
