This book examines the nude subject without makeup artists, hair stylists, lighting experts, and studios. People are their natural selves—beautiful just as they are. The book explores people in familiar, secure surroundings: their homes.
These photographs are nude portraits and figure studies, they are not romanticized glamour shots or erotic, sexualized images.
Look inside this private world that Joris Van Daele documents with sensitivity and an eye for detail.
