Naked Las Vegas
by Greg Friedler
Publisher's Description
Like Greg Friedler's three previous studies—Naked New York, Naked Los Angeles, and Naked London—where each subject appears first clothed and then without clothes, these seventy-five people both confirm and contradict our assumptions about those who live and work in Sin City. Color photographs echo the gaudy surface of the Strip, but these people—including waitresses, teachers, sex workers, businessmen, transsexuals, taxi drivers, mothers, and homeless men—dare to step outside their protective everyday facades.

Unlike traditional nude photography, these portraits are devoid of erotic or sexual overtones. Friedler's work is a kind of anthropological survey. If clothing is a voluntary choice, unclothed we see people in an involuntary state—we see their bodies as we see their faces, unmasked. These images are at once deeply intimate and refreshingly matter-of-fact.
