Consensual Nudes is an exploration into the way we perceive nudity and art photography from the position of model, photographer and viewer. In these portraits control has been given to the model. They were able to choose the level of nudity, directing themselves through the use of a mirror and capturing the scene at the moment they felt ready by using a cable release. Yet the viewer will see what they want to. Their preconceived ideas and different personal backgrounds will control their perceptions and therefore their experience of viewing the image. These portraits are an attempt to subvert the standard power relationship between the model and the camera, yet even in these images, who really has control?
