Play video On Monday, an image of an aged woman's hands in front of her nude body was deleted from Dreyfus' account "because the content might promote sexual violence or exploitation". She objected by posting a second photo of a woman's naked torso, this time focused on a long, deep scar running down the subject's sternum. As in all of the artist's photos, the woman's bare breasts are not blurred or obstructed in any way. Advertisement Artist Ella Dreyfus is conducting a social media experiment on the naked form.

I have to confess that it didn't come from an interest in photographing nudes or from studio photography. Self taught as a photographer, I was originally trained as a social psychologist. During the 70's I was involved in teaching and academic counseling at the University of Pennsylvania, and had volunteered as a drug counselor at a free clinic in Philadelphia. I had begun to feel that traditional academic psychology wasn't really addressing the issues of the inner journey or the way in which we view the world.
Within the past century, fine art nude photography has carried on this tradition. In many early examples of the genre, photographers had models simulate the austere poses of classical Greco-Roman statues as well as famous painted portraits of earlier eras. Depending on the intent of the photographer, artistic nude photographs can evoke an incredibly wide array of moods through lighting, posing, context, color, and texture. Though the ultimate distinction is left up to the viewer, artistic nudes may theoretically be distinguished from erotic photography in that any eroticism contained within a work of art is secondary to its overall aesthetics. The art of nude photography arose in the 19th century around the time the camera itself was invented.
