Lovely People. No Clothes. Brian Green‘s description, not mine, but it pretty succinctly sums up the theme of Bare, a gorgeous series put together by the South Carolina-based photographer. Lovely people, no clothes. I suppose it’s not the first time a photographer managed to riff off that particular theme successfully. For one, it’s tough not to look at this collection and be reminded of Ryan McGinley, of Vice and other fame, who’s built his massively impressive portfolio around an abundance of shots showcasing the young, the hip and the naked. Far from recycling though, Bare finds Green carving out his own distinct aesthetic–dark, faded beauty, double exposures, and a talent for finding that unique combination of all things nostalgic and surreal. Thanks to Pas Un Autre, for putting me up.
