I'm not usually one for nakedness. I don't have any qualms against a bare bum or boob in photos but I just don't usually find myself being drawn towards those particular pictures. That's why I was a little shocked with myself when I bookmarked Caroline Mackintosh's series Thigh Deep.
Mackintosh bares all in her underwater portraits that manage to elegantly display how a simple a tool as water can be used to warp perspectives and create images that maintain a serenity and calmness to them. They also allowed me to not be shocked and frantically try and close a tab whenever a boob appeared. Actually, I think it takes guts to strip down in a place where people could walk past at any moment and instead of people chastising her for the images she should be given credit where credit is due.
