Forget the Mao suits of a generation ago. Actually, forget about any clothes at all. Naked wedding photos are the hot new trend among young couples in once deeply conservative China. Even in Anhui, a largely rural province in the east, many newly-weds are having their pictures taken in the nude, to the fury of their parents’ generation, the Xin’an Evening News said.
“Some photo studios are just going too far. They allow young women to have their photos taken in bikinis or with nothing on at all,” said an irate woman from the Anhui capital of Hefei. “I hope the authorities will do something.”
She had just found out that her daughter had taken two sets of wedding photos, one to show the family, and another considerably more intimate one for her own private consumption.
