Why Nudism? (Part 23)
There's a limit to how true this is, as things like grooming habits, hairstyles, glasses, body jewelry, and makeup all change through the years, and may still be noticeable on a person even if that person is nude. Plus, the technology itself with which we record images of ourselves evolves, so that even photographs of nudists taken in the twentieth century, for example, do not resemble those taken in the twenty-first. Nevertheless, there are few things quite so conspicuously dated as contemporaneous fashion trends, and I find that as an artist - if less so a nudist - it is easier to make a "timeless" visual statement by representing the bodies we've inhabited since the dawn of man, without being distracted by the passing clothing styles of the day.
