There were a lot of male full-frontal shots that made TV better this year, but not in the way you may think. It\’s something that I\’ve discussed before for Decider, and ever since I\’ve first noticed it, it\’s something I can never completely shake.

Caroline Walls Celebrates The Female Form With Abstract Nude Studies

Before pursuing a full-time career as an artist, Melbourne-based Caroline Walls worked as a graphic designer and art director. These roles can be seen to have influenced her painting, sculpture and print works, which are characterized by bold, feminine forms that display a confident exploration of composition and colour. Particularly in the ‘She & Her’ print collection, Walls presents abstracted female nudes, which she consistently returns to as her primary inspiration, some of which more clearly represent their subject matter than others. The borderline that Walls establishes between the figurative and the abstract offers a focus on the female body that is purely formal and celebrates all appearances for their own inherent individualities.

Photo series explores the boundaries of gender by capturing men wearing dresses

What does it mean to be a man? And what does it mean to be a man wearing a dress? The photographer asked 30 men to be photographed in a dress and completely nude for the project, to question gender divisions and celebrate male bodies. \’This book is designed to show how this simple piece of clothing falls on a male body,\’ Matthew explains. \’Not in an elevated sense of drag or …

Baring it all

Mallika Taneja recalls, laughing. But although it is the most talked about aspect of her play, the 33-year-old says nudity is not the point of her piece. Thoda Dhyan Se (Be a little careful) is meant to provoke people into thinking about whether women\’s clothing really has any correlation with sexual violence …
