STOKES CROFT EXPOSED was wonderful…
A great coming together of men and women created two hours of magic on Thursday afternoon. The commitment of the entire team and all of the participants to the shoot was extraordinary. Everything that was done was done with dignity and a real sense of purpose – spectators on the the street loved it. What could easily have been nothing more than a nudist prank turned out to be adventurous and meaningful encounters with beauty and our shared humanity. It could hardly have gone any better…
Here is a link to an article on the BBC NEWS website.

The beautiful STOKES CROFT EXPOSED is now only two days away!
On Thursday 15. November between 11am and 3pm you are invited to become part of a beautiful collaborative fine art nude photography experience at CORNER77 on Stokes Croft.
Together and in groups of thirteen people at a time we will create deeply evocative tableaus of nude bodies that will reflect ideas of shared humanity, dignity, community and the beauty and strength of our bodies and souls.
Created away from the public gaze, the tableaus we arrive at will then be presented to the people passing on the street via the large window front facing Stokes Croft, photographed and exhibited in Bristol and beyond at a later date.
Everyone over the age of eighteen is welcome to take part – all you need to bring is:
come as you are – make-up, no make-up, pierced or not, shaven or un-shaven everyone is welcome just as they are.
please be sure to have showered before you come to join us.
• A SOBER MIND
anyone who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to take part.
• A HEALTHY BODY
if you currently suffer from any kind of infectious disease unfortunately you won’t be able to take part.
Please contact me if you think you might like to participate and do share the event with your friends and acquaintances.
I very much look forward to hearing from you and to working with you on Thursday!
