About Naked Britain

"Close Gallery will be hosting an exhibition of photographic prints from Amelia Allen’s new book, NAKED BRITAIN. Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase during the exhibition.

As a fashion photographer, Amelia Allen works in an industry obsessed with body image, one that focuses on the most flattering way of dressing oneself. It was therefore, an unusual and refreshing step for her to move into a world where the body is completely liberated, devoid of styling and stripped of fabric and fashion.

In her book, Amelia explores the reasons behind the unique and controversial status of naturism in todays society that often associates nudity with sex. To Amelia, that association is a harmful misconception. In the naturist world, people connect as equals, regardless of appearance, wealth, occupation or status.

By literally stripping off and immersing herself in 21st century naturism, Amelia discovered liberation, empowerment and the sense of fun that naturists embrace and enjoy.

For the last two years Amelia has inhabited both worlds producing this sociological documentary through the eyes of her camera lens. Her developing interest in reportage photography comes from her enjoyment of travelling, meeting new people and observing them in their everyday life. Amelia’s ability to connect with people and tell a story through imagery facilitated the exhibition and book.

“The sense of fun, freedom and liberation that naturism offers its advocates is extraordinarily infectious and I like to think I have captured the raw beauty of that."

Amelia Allen is a fashion, portrait and documentary photographer. She has been photographing shows, clothes, models, celebrities and London Fashion Week every season since she was eighteen and has had work published in magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Tatler and Harpers Bazaar as well as being interviewed by the BBC about this body of work.”
