According to the XIV Congress of the International Naturist Federation, “naturism” is “a lifestyle in harmony with nature, expressed through social nudity, and characterised by self-respect of people with different opinions and of the environment.”
The Naturists is Miami-based artist Christiaan Lopez-Miro’s exploration of a community of naturists who live on private campgrounds in Loxahatchee, Florida. Fascinated by subcultures generally inaccessible to society, Lopez-Miro chose to concentrate on a unique lifestyle that is often stigmatized and considered taboo. Through these photographs, the viewer is allowed to analytically stare without guilt or shame, observing the quiet moments of a culture separated from society.
The Naturists will open on Friday, November 20th, 2015 from 6PM to 9PM at 6th Street Container: 1155 SW 6th Street (Rear), Miami, Florida.
