I discovered Idan’s work on Facebook while surfing on the net and went on his website right away. What first hit me was the look and the face of the models, not their nudity. Instantly I knew I wanted to be a part of this.
A picture of me taken at the beach in a bathing suit had caused to hate my body to the point that I wouldn’t uncover it. Later, discovering the practice of nudity which naturism consists in, helped me to accept my body and not being afraid of showing it among naturists
I like Idan Wizen’s concept: Showing how beautiful the human body with all its imperfections is. My desire to take part in this project was aroused through exhibitions. I was there at the first two, and bought two pictures to ornate my home. Watching them constantly increased my desire to pose and perhaps to have my picture touching a secret female admire. Being of a shy nature, it took me 6 months before I made up my mind to step in! But, The curiosity and the desire of a new experience were stronger.
Image is one thing. Speech is another. Besides, I like that my photography speaks for itself, without words.
I have a feeling that telling my story breaks anonymity.
At the end of the afternoon, I went on Facebook. "Nude In The Living Room", a bright red background that inevitably catches the eye, and this round and cheerful woman make an exhibition announcement impossible to miss!
The concept amuses me… I want to know more…. click click on the photographer's website, he is online at the time I visit… we are chatting… the current is going well. I like the concept enormously, moreover as a photographer, the least of the things is that I am able to do for others what I ask my models ... I do not hesitate a second more.
One evening, as I was having a drink at the Roto Bar, a small wine bar where many exhibitions take place, I chanced upon the preview of “Who’s that nude in your living room?”. Photographs of nude models are displayed on every wall. My friends who have arrived earlier tell me about the concept: anyone can ask to be a model and the photographer takes everyone!
One day, my daughter showed me “who’s that nude in your living room”’s website and told me about the concept: posing nude without any artifices and without having the picture being touched up. For me it was obvious, I had to do it.
I heard about Idan’s project through a friend. My first reaction was to laugh… What is this crazy project? After a while, I decided to check it out on the Internet. I was surprised by my own reaction. What I thought at first was a joke was actually one of the most beautiful and artistic things I had ever seen. The more I looked at the pictures, the more the message of the project was obvious. Each picture is unique and tells a story of a person who decided to show themselves in the most natural and simple way. A surprising idea popped into my head: I wanted to be part of it.
A few months ago, I chanced upon the “Who’s that nude in your living room”’s website. After some email exchange, I had the information I wanted. I thought hard. I saw it as a challenge. Two months later, after I had seen how the project was developing, I made up my mind and took the plunge.
I have always been intrigued by artistic nude and if sitting appealed to me, I didn’t dare to take the plunge though, to tell the truth, I never really had the opportunity… I used to think of it as a gift for your companion, a picture that would remain in the couple’s privacy. I became acquainted with “Who’s That Nude In Your Living Room?” by word of mouth and I discovered simple photos, beautiful and natural, which made the best of every model stand out whatever their age or stoutness, and with no exhibitionism nor vulgarity.
