I love it when artists enter into different mediums. Especially when it's for a good cause. Victoria Bennet's 2012 calendar, "The Naked Muse" features photographs of male poets taken by female photographers to raise money for Type 1 diabetes. The black-and-white nudes were taken to illustrate poems about the topic of the male muse.
Take a look at these artful nudes, and if you're feeling so inclined purchase the calendar and contribute to their fundraising.
And while we're on the subject, how many of you out there would or have taken professional nudes of yourself. And if so do you hang them at home or use them mainly for your online profiles. Let us know about your experiences, and any recommendations for posing, being photographed, or an actual photographer.
