Warning: This post contains full-frontal male nudity and may be inappropriate for work environments. Sure, depicting a naked body can lead to objectification and sexualization as women can surely attest. But a powerful nude representation also has the power to be empowering, liberating, and, of course, beautiful. In , photographer Abigail Ekue embarked on a mission to photograph the unclothed male body in a truthful, expressive and direct manner, a style Ekue saw was lacking in the larger cultural lexicon. Her project is open to all men over 21, including trans men, regardless of race, body type, tattoos, piercings, or whatever else. From the start, it was important to Ekue that she capture the entire male form from head to toe, so the images resist becoming either too sexualized or too romanticized. She wanted a real person, desirable yet flawed, as we all are. Ekue photographs her subjects in their homes, an effort to make them feel as comfortable as possible. Bare Men offers a striking range of individuals and bodies, each attractive in its vulnerability and strength. Yet for the many men whose naked bodies are rendered invisible by mainstream culture, it becomes difficult to imagine the possibility that their bodies could be, in and of themselves, attractive.

Skip navigation! Story from Body. Photographer Amelia Allen's new book, Naked Britain, is a celebratory exploration of the human body, with a focus on the UK's growing naturism aka nudist movement. Essentially, she was looking to highlight a different kind of beauty. Thanks to the lack of representation of diverse bodies in media, it can sadly take a lot of work for people to love their bodies and to not hold up others as the epitome of perfection. Thankfully, Allen's shots of the naturists, free of self-consciousness and judgement, encourage you to do just that: appreciate your body for the wonder that it is. Click through to see our favorite photographs from the book, and to read more about Allen's experience photographing this community. Over the weekend, Schumer thanked fans.
