Bodies. 6 Women, 1 Man is a powerful photo series that speaks against the common use of airbrushing in today's society. The perpetuation of a perfection that is nigh impossible to achieve without technology or going under the knife is unsettling and photographer Nadav Kander addresses the situation with raw images that celebrate the natural human form.

Currently on display at the Flower Gallery in London, England, the Bodies. 6 Women, 1 Man photo series revolves around nude portraits. Each naked individual, all of whom are red-headed, has been covered in white marble dust and shot against a black backdrop. This allows every inch of their bodies to be emphasized. Kander writes, "Revealed yet concealed. Shameless yet shameful. Ease with unease. Beauty and destruction, These paradoxes are displayed in all my work; an inquiry into what it feels like to be human." Stats for Airbrush-Protesting Portraits Trending: Older & Warm
