As a fashion photographer, Amelia Allen works in an industry obsessed with body image, one that focuses on the most flattering way of covering bodies. It was therefore an unusual and refreshing step for her to move into a world where the body is completely liberated, devoid of styling and stripped of fabric and fashion. People are no longer defined by appearance and are free to connect as equals, regardless of wealth, occupation or social standing. In her book, Amelia explores the reasons behind the unique and controversial status of naturism in today’s society that often associates nudity with sex; to Allen that association is a harmful misconception.
