Naturist of the Center of Arnaoutchot, Landes, France
by Yann Arthus Bertrand
Birthplace of this movement in the 1930s, France welcomes each year 2 millions of naturists, urban people mostly but all from different social background, 60% coming from neighboring European countries.
The Naturism, practice wanting to be in harmony with nature, can help developping, according to its adherents, personal satisfaction and respect for others.
I, personnaly, love this picture because what we see is millions of people all together naked, ans no one care about how the other look. It’s a picture of millions of people comfortable enough in their body to show it to a photograph without any shame. The peoples you see in this picutre, are they perfect ? No, they aren’t. Do they all have model bodies ? No, they don’t. Should they hide themselves ? No, they shouldn’t.
Everybody is different, and it’s something we rarely see on the medias.
Enjoy the body you have, and be proud of it.
(Let’s be clear, I’m not asking all of you to convert to naturism)
