In photography, much like other mediums, the nude body has been an eternal muse, acting as the site for creativity and the performance of human experience. While depictions of beauty and perfection have traditionally been more widely accepted especially in our age of preened social media accounts , there is something to be said about strange bodies—the passionate, odd, grotesque, and sometimes clownish bodies that contort, bend, pose, and hide in front of the camera. By showing us different angles and secret moments, strange bodies reflect the deep quality of our world; they tell stories of sensuality in horror and confidence in vulnerability. They give us a fuller answer of what it means to be walking around on the planet in a vessel made of flesh and physics. They show us an authentic yet rarely-seen aspect of the soul. Featured here are 10 photographers who show us this side of the body: the strange body.

10 Photographers Capturing Beautifully Strange Nudes

You know not to send ladies unsolicited pictures of your package. But did you know that in Singapore you can't be naked in your own home?!?! Or that until the early 19th century, the country was possibly governed by Nevernudes? You didn't, did you? Yea, turns out there are still a lot of weird nudity laws like Singapore's on the books, both in the US and around the world.
Sveta Bilyalova. Age: 30. A young, loving beauty with a flexible body and a delightful smile offers an unforgettable meeting with the most vivid impressions.
Weird Nude Art
I accept that our culture rates self-involvement increasingly highly. In Shock of the Nude , which explores the idea of the male gaze, she is the star and Michelangelo, Courbet and all the rest of them can go hang. Having planted this notion in our minds, she then offers another thought. Why, then, did she not to mention her director include it? What irks me about this solipsism is that it comes at the expense of facts, context and inquiry.
