The Naked Girls With Masks photo series questions the idea of self-censorship and why we have chosen to hide our body while share our faces with the public. Considering that eyes are often considered the windows to our souls, you would think that the face can be just as intimate as any other part of our bodies.

Shot by London-based photographer Ben Hopper, the Naked Girls With Masks photo series is a bold photoshoot that is at once liberating, playful and even frightening -- though the latter descriptor is all thanks to some of the masks used throughout it.

Special mention goes to Kris Wlodarski, who created the conehead, bandaged face concept for some of the models in the Naked Girls With Masks photo series.
