With her nudity photography series 'Lake Como,' Tampa-based photographer Katty Ryan Hoover explores a way of life that's unfamiliar to most of us.

The project began as a nude series; however, Hooever was frustrated trying to find subjects willing to pose in the buff. Luckily, a couple living in Como responded to her Craiglist ad, ultimately shifting the project's focus from "nude" to "nudist."

Because of the stigma around the clothing-free lifestyle, Hoover notes that many of the residents don't disclose the information to those outside the community. However, it's important to remember that, "Like most groups of people, the nudist way of life is far from being homogeneous." Even just in terms of her project, Hoover says that "The participants really span the gamut." Stats for Revealing Nudist Photography Trending: This Month & Hot
