Amelia Allen has travelled the country photographing the British Naturists for her Naked Britain book and exhibition

About

As a fashion photographer, Amelia Allen works in an industry obsessed with body image, one that focuses on the most flattering way of dressing oneself. It was therefore an usual and refreshing step for her move into a world where the body is completely liberated, devoid of styling and stripped of fabric and fashion.

In Naked Britain, Amelia explores the reason behind the unique and controversial status of naturism in today’s society that often associates nudity with sex. To Amelia, that association if a harmful misconception; In the naturist world, people connect as equals, regardless of appreaance, wealth, occupation, or status, be literally stripping off and immersing herself in the 21st century naturism, Amelia discovered liberation, empowerment and the sense of fun that naturists embrace and enjoy.

For the last two years she has inhabited both worlds producing this sociological documentary through the eye song her camera lens. Her developing interests in reportage photography comes from her enjoyment of travelling, meeting new people and observing them in their everyday life. Amelia’s ability to connect with people and tell and story through imagery facilitated this publication and exhibition.

“The sense of fun, freedom, and liberation that naturism offers its advocates is extraordinarily infectious and I like to think I have captured the raw beauty of that.”
