Naked Toronto

Toronto photographers want to shoot you naked

Two Toronto photographers are looking to help people get more comfortable in their own skins, and make a little art while they're at it. A new project called Fully Disclothed will capture Torontonians going about their day-to-day lives and engaging in routine activities like work, meditation, reading, cooking and cycling - only they'll be ass-naked while they do it.

"The point is to invite people to step outside of their comfort zones and do something they never thought they'd do, and express themselves in the process," says Kailie Ridsdale, one of the artists working on the project. "The point is to give up what we've been hiding, on a physical level, and on a personal level." The project targets people who are afraid to pose naked, nudging them out of that fear so that they can "know themselves as someone with enough guts to be naked on the internet."

Participants will be given three images of their birthday suit-clad selves, as well as an opportunity to write a piece detailing what they gained (or lost) from the experience.

See the naked truth (or sign up to have your photo taken) on the project's website.
