View Full Version : Woman takes 365 days of nude self portrait

I ran across this blog post about a girl who took a nude self photo a day. I had a look at her work and I think there are some well thought out and done photos but there are a lot of average ones also. Well here is the article and it has link to her flikr page with the photos. Nude Photo a Day (http://blogs.nerve.com/scanner/2009/10/22/photographer-breaks-free-with-365-days-of-nude-self-portraits/), would be interested in what other think.

Out of 365 days I saw a very small handful that I found interesting or well done. There was a couple though. At least she isn't just in there flashing everything and calling it art.
It would be a huge undertaking to take 365 photos of yourself and make everyone worth while.

Yep 365 projects are pretty tough in general. All about 1 subject even tougher.
I haven't seen any particularly interesting shots....but I'll keep looking :)

I've made two unsuccessful attempts at a photo 365 though I wasn't using myself as a subject. It's a freakin' difficult thing to do. First few weeks isn't too bad but there are some days you just don't seem to get around to picking up the camera.

Kudos to her for having the tenacity to stick it through to the end.

I didn't look at all of them but quite a few. I can see what she's trying to do and I have no problem with nude photos.

On a personal perspective I don't like the 'mood' I get from these shots at all. I cannot see that she's taking any joy in her body at all. I could write more of what I interpret but it's probably not a good idea.

I like the concept and I like a bunch of shots - it's definitely a GREAT way to get flickr comments :p
