I first learned of nudism in the 1950’s when as a teenager I found some nudist magazines in a local drugstore...yes, believe it or not they were openly sold at our small-town drugstore. When I first saw those wonderful pictures of men, women and children gleefully playing outdoors completely nude, I was hooked. They all looked so happy with their nudity, and they seemed to be without a single thought of shame. Immediately my interest in those photographs of nude people took on a completely new meaning for me, and I decided that I would live my life as a nudist.

Those beautiful nudist photographs confirmed the idea of nudism within me for the rest of my life. A photograph conveys in a way no words can, a sense of the mystery and beauty of life and nature. A nude photograph isolates the truth, exposing to us the realities of our total being. An expressive face, a graceful body, a fleeting moment in nature, a human shape within the landscape, a mother and child with loving smiles…these are the fundamental stories told by nudist photographs that inspires me. We seldom realize the extent to which photography has influenced our culture, and nudist photography has contributed more than almost anything else towards educating people about the acceptance of their own bodies. Nudism embraces being human without shame. After all, a Supreme Power created us without shame; why then should we be ashamed of such a wonderful creation…our bodies?

I have noticed lately that there seems to be a trend in main-stream family-oriented nudist organizations toward being almost apologetic about nudist photography, and less emphasis is being placed on the quality and clarity of the photographs that nudist publications present. Some nudist publications are presenting almost as many photographs of clothed people as nude people. It is my opinion that unapologetic and beautifully presented photographs of nudist families enjoying their freedom to be nude is one of the best ways to express the nudist idea.

The porn industry has hijacked the term "nudist" and "nudism" for their own profits. An excellent way to fight the porn industry is to present true quality nudist photography that represents what family-friendly nudism is all about.

It's interesting what might happen to the porn industry if all people believed in and accepted the natural wholesomeness and beauty of the nude human body... Paradise on earth would be a world where people could be either nude or clothed, and would be treated with equal respect and acceptance.

So how do we help our society, friends and family understand and embrace the idea that being nude is natural, healthy and fun? Non-nudists are suspicious of nudists because they don't understand what family-friendly nudism is all about. Our nudist community must become more forthright by telling friends and family of their involvement and enjoyment of family-friendly nudism. Nudist photographs depicting what really represents family-friendly nudism will help them tell the vastly misunderstood nudist story.

If nudist organizations wish to attract more young people into nudism, then photographs of young nudists should be shown happily enjoying youthful nude activities. Let’s share the nudist story by presenting interesting and compelling nudist photography and see our nudist organizations grow.
