Instagram has always been a tricky one where nudity is concerned; “Free the Nipple” movement, anyone? But Los Angeles-based photographer Magdalena Wosinka has garnered much attention after posing naked in a series of snaps taken across California.
Wosinka has pretty much all bases covered in terms of where she takes her self-portraits: beaches, rivers, cliff-tops – you name it. In some photos she is seen leaning over a balcony, whilst in others she is draped over rocks and fences, or walking through fields with horses.
Largely a lifestyle and advertising photographer, Wosinka lists Ford, Microsoft and Target as some of her clients. In explaining the reasoning behind the decision to begin the series of nude photos that has amassed her a following of more than 120,000, she says, “It’s pretty simple: It’s just timeless. No one can tell what status, class or group you belong to in the nude.”
She added: “It’s thought out, composed and takes a bit longer than a snapshot. I’ve been shooting self-portraits since 1999 so that’s kind of when it all started then flourished into a series well before Instagram. Then when the app came along and I decided to join, I started showcasing the work there as well.”
