“I grew up in the US where there is a taboo surrounding nudity. The female body is strong, beautiful, and capable of incredible things and one shouldn’t feel ashamed to be in one’s natural state. There is nothing vulgar about it: it’s life. I felt proud to give a big ‘fuck you’ to this silly taboo, and I felt strong by being totally soft, gentle, free, and in my complete element moving with nature’s rose.”
