Photographer Nicholas Nixon’s next big challenge: nudes
Nixon's photographs shed light on the human experience -- including the complicated relationships we have with our own bodies
For more than three decades, Nicholas Nixon of Brookline has ranked among the most respected photographers in the country. A friend once told him he always photographs people naked, referring to the intimacy of his work and meticulous detail. Now he is literally photographing people in the nude, and it’s his biggest challenge ever. Not many people want to pose for him.
