The Ellery Gazette recently enlisted photographer Steven Chee for this nude editorial to pique viewer interest and kick its first issue off with a bang. The clothes-free pictorial highlights natural beauty; models Greta, Dani Seitz, Saara Sihvonen, Sarah Lorimer and Anja Konstantinova expose their body piercings, tattoos, freckles and birthmarks with aplomb.

Hair stylist Michael Brennan kept the models' hair loose, effortless and sensual for The Ellery Gazette -- many look as if they'd just gotten out of bed or come home from a day at the beach. Makeup artist Charlie Kielty's cosmetic stylings are similarly minimalist; a touch of shimmery eyeshadow and bronzer are all the models get. The result is an editorial with an artistic quality that we don't usually see in today's sexed-up publications. Stats for Hot Dramatic Nudetography Trending: Older & Buzzing
