Note: Contains nudity.

Last March we featured the work of Brian Cattelle, an American photographer who embarked on an ambitious project called “BARE USA.” The concept was simple, yet powerful: to travel to each of the 50 states, photographing nude models in abandoned buildings, thereby reinvesting scenes of neglect with beauty and new life. On November 15th, Brian went to Hawaii to shoot his 50th and final state. His website has been updated, and you can now view all the images from his travels. Prints are available here, and he will be publishing a book (digital and hardcopy) of the full collection.
