Dutch publishing house MENDO has partnered with creative director Iman Whitfield on #SENDNUDES, a publication approaching erotic photography from a female point of view.
While overtly sexualized imagery of women runs rampant through the entertainment, fashion, and the streetwear industries, Whitfield and her series of commissions seek to reclaim sexuality and womanhood by examining a select form of body confidence — nudity.
A number of photographers from around the globe have shared their take on female sensuality, which as MENDO describes, teases “the delicate line between that which is revealed and that which remains private.”
For those interested in purchasing, #SENDNUDES is available for pre-order now, retailing at €50 (approximately $58). Those who sign up will receive a signed print from photographer Kwabena Appiah-Nti for free.
