Photographer Jim Mangan has been photographing models running through the Sahara Desert completely and utterly nude. These incredibly captivating photographs are the third installment in a series of photographs by the artist, the first being a collection of photographs that go into the theme of rebirth. His current series is called Bedu and these shots really do capture the essence of letting it all hang out.

The photographs feature a few models throwing around sand, running across large sand mountains and covering themselves in thick sand clouds. I love how the sand becomes such a great subject paired with the vast and empty backdrop of the Sahara.

This is Jim's debut project as a photographer, as he worked in the snowboarding industry prior to pursuing a photography career.
