Cameron Maynard, is a nude art and fashion photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. His main body of work is dedicated to celebrating natural, unedited beauty and self-acceptance. Through his photography he seeks to illustrate that nudity isn’t inherently sexual; it is something natural that can form a statement of empowerment, not vulnerability.
“As I run into the dark of midnight, my mind is clear and my body numb. Nature envelopes my nakedness as if it were trying to reclaim something it had lost. As I lay there gazing into the starlight above, the country air cloudless and unpolluted, I dream of a world where natural beauty and rawness is valued as highly as painted mannequins are today. I dream of a world where girls can run freely, our bodies completely our own. All of this is clear to me, as I dream in black and white.“
