Photographer and Parsons Faculty, George Pitts, moderates a panel discussion on the role of the nude in contemporary photography, with Vince Aletti, Shen Wei, Mariah Robertson, and Mona Kuhn.

Bare flesh always captures the viewer’s attention—but why does a photographer choose to shoot the naked body, and what does it symbolize today? Does it still have an impact or are we desensitized to the unclothed human form? Get ready for an in-depth analysis that will have you looking at naked skin in a whole new way.
