 She was so beautiful at that time. I didn’t say, “Pose nude.” It was more one thing leading to another: You take clothes off and off and off and off and off. (On his June 1962 photo shoot with Marilyn Monroe.) 

Ren Hang
[Photographer and poet, b. 1987, Changchun, Jilin Province, China, d. 2017, Beijing.]

 Nudes are there since always. We were born nude. So talking about revolution, I don’t think there’s anything to revolutionize. 

Paul Outerbridge
[Photographer, b. 1896, New York, d. 1958, Laguna Beach, California.]

 The advantages of photographing the nude are few because nudes have very little, in fact practically no commercial value. The disadvantages are many because it is the most difficult thing to do from every point of view. 

Rankin (John Rankin Waddell)
[Photographer, b. 1966, Glasgow, Scotland, lives in London.]

 When you look at pornography, the women become objects, whereas what I’m trying to do is make the person in the photograph as important as their body. And obviously, I like tits and arse, because I just do. I like the sex of taking photographs. 

Man Ray (Emanuel Radnitsky)
[Artist, b. 1890, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, d. 1976, Paris.]

 Speaking of nudes, I have always had a great fondness for this subject, both in my paintings and in my photos, and I must admit, not for purely artistic reasons. 

Mona Kuhn
[Photographer, b. 1969, São Paulo, Brazil, lives in Los Angeles.]

 I wasn’t interested in just photographing someone naked, I was interested in representing them as clothed in their own skin, secure in themselves. 

Ren Hang
[Photographer and poet, b. 1987, Changchun, Jilin Province, China, d. 2017, Beijing.]

 People come into this world naked and I consider naked bodies to be people’s original, authentic look. 

Bettina Rheims
[Photographer, b. 1952, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, lives in Paris.]

 I think that I first started to shoot naked women because I wanted my father to look at my images and father liked very pretty women.
