Have you ever had an image removed from your Instagram feed for sharing something that was against the social network's nudity guidelines? It's happened constantly to artist AdeY whose work is a study of the human body's balance, strength and physics in all its purest form: bare, undressed and naked. Written by: Katy Cowan. Now an upcoming exhibition and accompanying photo book entitled Uncensored responds to such moves by Instagram. I implore Instagram to take social responsibility and engage positively in promoting art on their platform. With a background in performance, choreography and contemporary dance, AdeY hopes to create a "non-sexualised and open-minded representation of humankind, which is based on a dream of acceptance".
Nude photography is the creation of any photograph which contains an image of a nude or semi-nude person, or an image suggestive of nudity. Nude photography is undertaken for a variety of purposes, including educational uses, commercial applications and artistic creations. The exhibition or publication of nude photographs may be controversial, more so in some cultures or countries than in others, and especially if the subject is a minor. Nude photographs may be used for scientific and educational purpose, such as ethnographic studies , human physiology or sex education. In this context, the emphasis of the photograph is not on the subject, or the beauty or eroticism of the image, but on the educational or demonstrative purpose for which the image was produced. The nude image may be used for analysis or to accompany medical or other text books, scientific reports, articles or research papers.

In this guide, fine art nude photographer Lauren Naylor shares every thing you need to know about nude photography including tips and tricks on taking inspired shots. In the early s, then in her thirties, she ventured into the Sierra Nevada wilderness, where she created nude photographs and nude portraits —many of them self-portraits of herself and her sisters in a rugged, natural landscape. For a woman at the turn of the century, it was a bold and subversive move; many call it revolutionary.
