Naturists Campaigning for Naturism

US Artist wins BP Portrait Award with Nude

Not strictly naturist, but the winner of this year’s BP Portrait Award has been announced. NY-based artist Aleah Chapin’s Auntie is a full-length portrait of an “older” woman. The portrait is just one of a series of portraits of women created by Ms Chapin, all of whom are real and not altered to appear ‘perfect’.

You can see the picture by going to The Independent article, or to the artist’s website.

The nude has been a staple of artists for centuries of course, but does this selection signify that society is becoming used to the naked body, and is it a good thing? Does it improve our chances to gain greater acceptance for naturism, or do you think nothing has changed? Tell us what you think.
