Among naked artists like David Hockney, Annie Leibovitz, Tracey Emin and Mario Testino, also catch photos of Yoko Ono, John Lennon, Naomi Campbell, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall in the exhibit, which its curator Amy Barker says: “Naked portraits can be flattering or honest, seductive or shocking, vulnerable or liberating. Nakedness is associated with authenticity – ‘the naked truth’. In contrast, the nude belongs to a tradition of idealised figures that extends back to ancient Greece. All of the images in Exposed are naked portraits rather than depictions of the nude.”
