Greg Friedler's photographs...go a long way toward explaining why the fashion industry has such a hold on us. The simple truth is--judging from this book anyway--most of us look better in clothes. And we're not all exactly supermodels. Friedler's ordinary Joes and Janes answered an ad to pose both fully dressed and buck-naked. The result--a follow-up to his "Naked New York"--is fascinating an altogether consoling. "Anatomically incorrect" has never looked so right.  
Book Description 
In this unique and startling collection of portraits following Naked New York, we see the "beautiful people" of Los Angeles first clothed, then completely naked. The people of Los Angeles are men and women of all shapes, ages, colors, and professions living in a city famed for its Hollywood glamour and perpetual summer. Photographed outdoors we see a magician, screenwriter, trapeze artist, unemployed surfer, filmmaker, casting director, aerospace engineer, and many more. This serious and, at the same time, amusing group of portraits shows the surprising differences and not so surprising similarities we have to one another clothed and unclothed. Unlike traditional nude photography, these portraits don't have erotic or sexual overtones; they are simply real people who reveal both their clothed public selves and their naked private selves. Greg Friedler's work as a documentary photographer is a kind of anthropological survey of people. If clothing is a voluntary choice, unclothed we see people in an involuntary state-we see their bodies as we see their faces, unmasked. These images are at once deeply intimate and refreshingly matter of fact.
