Beautiful photos. Your poses together are so natural. As a figure model myself, I know it so rare for two models to pose on the same stand, so you are providing a truly exceptional experience for artists. Thank you for sharing.
Happy New Year! Esther and I stood among the crowds gathered at Hilly Fields Park in Brockley, clutching glasses of wine and watching wave after wave of fireworks surge in arcs from the distant London Eye. It was a simple start to what we hoped would be an extraordinary 12 months of modelling and performance. The next day we began our preparations…
Over the last three months of 2015 we had acquired a taste for life modelling together; we shared poses twice for Art Macabre, in Oxford and Birmingham, once for Mall Galleries, and twice for Esther’s own Spirited Bodies events – at Bargehouse and Tanner Street. To help keep this going through 2016, we decided to get a portfolio of duo-posing photos taken.
In truth we also wanted pictures simply to celebrate being together. Our photographer was the artist known as Lidia. She…

LABSN Editor’s Note: I just wanted to share this.
LSBSN Editor’s Note2: I don’t think I posted this, although it’s from about 6 months ago. Oh, well, I think it’s still relevant.
LABSN Editor’s Note: I think this says it all. We need to get the conversation started.
LABSN Editor’s Note: In honor of National Women’s Month I’m posting this very interesting piece about a 14th century woman artist. Women artists in general do not receive the accolades they deserve, and early women artists are all but unknown outside of the art academia community. I hope you enjoy this article, and notice at the end there is a link to a crowd-funding effort to restore this masterpiece. If you can, help out.
LABSN Editor’s Note: I just thought these photos were so beautiful I had to share them. Hope you all think so also.
Excellent article, and the comments are very informative. Jillian, you always have blogs that get us all think, which I personally appreciate. Thank you.
“Full frontage nudists are not exhibitionists but are showing their body acceptance without shame.”
It was something I had been thinking about recently, after seeing numerous full-frontal photos on social media shared by naturists. Many of them were posing, like any tourist would, in front of various attractions. One, for example, was standing in front of a giant cactus in Arizona.
The only difference between them and your average tourist is that the naturists were, quite naturally, naked.
Were they exhibitionists? No, I reasoned. At least, not any more so than clothed tourists who post photos of themselves. So, the issue was quickly resolved in my mind, and pretty much laid to rest . . . until my friend SoCalNaturist posted the quote above along with some full-frontal photos on Twitter (as many naturists do there).
The four pictures are grouped together in a gallery of sorts: one shows a…

LABSN Editor’s Note: I always find the thoughts Skyclad expresses in his Naturist Lens blog interesting. I’ve found this blog expecially interesting. I hope you all also enjoy the blog.
Emma was kind enough to send me a “selfie” she took in the not-too-distant past. Like many naturists or nudists, she takes selfies to record her life unclothed. I am no different. I als…
