ART SERIES: Born to be Nude

Photographs by Libby Cooper

My name is Libby Cooper. I’m a 20-year-old nude photographer, based in London. Shortly after graduating in 2020, I created a project called Born To Be Nude. It’s a series dedicated to creating a safe space to celebrate nudity without sexualisation. I aim to help alter the narrative surrounding nudity by photographing people in a more free-spirited and vulnerable way. I am endlessly inspired by the incredible people I work with and am surrounded by, as well as taking inspiration from renaissance imagery.

Born To Be Nude has been featured in Best Of PhotoVogue, Feminist, Zoella, and CuratedByGirls. This project has helped me so much with my body image and I hope it has such an impact on others.

Libby Cooper is an 18 year old nude photographer who recently graduated from The BRIT School. In June 2020 she began her first nude series, setting out with the intent of helping others find peace within their bodies, whilst also exploring the relationship with her own body. As the project grew Libby began to realise it was not only important to find comfort within but to have the space to celebrate this without being sexualised.
