But not as we know it.

Trevor Christensen’s Nude Portraits is a series of photos for which he, the photographer, was naked, eliciting a range of reactions from his subjects.

The photographer/subject paradigm is one of inequality. Nude Portraits is about leveling the playing field in an unorthodox way. Instead of focusing on bringing the subject to a place of ease, where I am, this project brings me to a place of vulnerability.

This vulnerability is achieved by making portraits without clothing. These are nude portraits in the sense that I, the photographer, am nude, while the subject is not.
