The excitement of surpassing myself

A few months ago, I chanced upon the “Who’s that nude in your living room”’s website. After some email exchange, I had the information I wanted. I thought hard. I saw it as a challenge. Two months later, after I had seen how the project was developing, I made up my mind and took the plunge. Trust is the force that drives you to pose and let somebody invade your intimacy… and I did lack some! I was sure that I couldn’t do it. I felt stupid, stark naked in front of a stranger. But at the same time, I also felt like doing something very exciting! Not because I was sitting nude but because I was surpassing myself. In fact, it all went off very smoothly. The photographer helped me feel at ease without casting the least prying glance… I felt he was there to focus on a subject and that it was the only thing that interested him. You can feel it, you know! Even if I didn’t dare to sit facing him. At the end I was more relaxed. What made my decision easier in the first place was that the photographer was a man. I don’t think I would have taken the plunge if I had had to face a photographer of the opposite sex. I suppose it’s the reverse for other people.
To conclude I can’t but incite you to join in this project and trust the artist.
