Think Adam and Eve and the sinfulness they committed against God....quickly thereafter clothing themselves....maybe an attempt to hide from themselves
and what they have done....
Those photos you posted (last one) is a beautiful in composition, expression, light and shadow.
Yes, I know that is the official reason but.... lets just say my BS radar is buzzing.
Re Adam and Eve, the way the story is related in Genesis shows what happens when a person sins. When a person sins they see in themselves something
they don't like. They then push away God and their fellow because they don't like themselves so they don't think others should not like them too. They
hide away from them, just like Adam hid from God, and they blame everybody else, just like Adam blamed God and Eve in the same breath. Of course we
have developed sophisticated ways to do all that, clothes being one way of hiding from our fellows.
I agree that last photo is beautiful, the left eye has been lit just right so that you can see a bottom lid and pupil, the whole thing is made from
white marble but it looks so real, so much so that I wonder if the photographer got the angle just so or if it has been photo shopped.
