Nude (art) Photography in Uganda

This is my take on nude (art) photography since I’ve recently seen some nude work being criticized recently on different social media platforms in Uganda!

Nude art is another form of photography used to express ideals of male and female beauty and other human qualities.

For example athletes, dancers, and warriors are depicted to express human energy and life, and nudes in various poses may express basic or complex emotions such as pathos.

In one sense, a nude is a work of fine art that has as its primary subject the unclothed human body, forming a subject genre of art, in the same way as landscapes and still life. Unclothed figures often also play a part in other types of art, such as history painting, including allegorical and religious art, portraiture, or the decorative arts.

Sometimes people misinterpret nude photography as pornographic material rather than art something that is wrong especially when the story behind the photograph is misunderstood. This is due to the fact that pictures often tend to look more realistic than sculptures or paintings or any other forms of nude art work!

  1. Explaining to the world out there about is a complex adventure.
    Art is mainly understood by those who love art. Most pictures circulate as leaks by people with different intentions hence hiding the real story of the picture.
    Making people understand the story of a picture is a Picture itself, is very hard.
