VIEW—the monthly general interest magazine from the publishers of Stern—recently held an online competition for the best nude photographs. This title presents the ten winning images chosen by Internet users as well as a “Best-Of” of the nude photography from the VIEW photo community. These pictures constitute the crčme de la crčme of amateur erotica. They convey a freshness and candor rarely seen in so-called professional work. With approaches ranging from everyday openness to stylized scenarios, these works resonate with vigor and originality. We, the readers, can share in these dreams and illusions, gazing directly at other’s desires. This is a remarkable document and its photos will suprise and impress for sure.
