Instagram’s community guidelines page clearly states that, “We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don't allow nudity on Instagram.” Fair point, since not everyone delights in such images.
But, a 25-year-old model and photographer, found a way around the strict guidelines of the photo-sharing platform and posted her black and white nude pictures, in yoga postures. She now has a huge fan following on Instagram.
Previously, the photo sharing site took off, several photos of the celebrities, who posted their nude and semi nude pictures, exposing their buttocks and female nipples.
Yoga girl, who is aware of all these, want her photos to be on the photo sharing platform at any cost. Because of that, she strategically edited her body parts on the pictures, even nipples are digitally edited and thus removed the eroticism and made it a clean yoga pose.
The yoga girl says that, only through yoga, one can love their body fully. She attempted to this photo shoot in a studio setting erected in her own house and her boyfriend is the man behind the shutter.
While some reacted in erotic sense, after she shared her photograph on Instagram, most of them understood the intention behind her pictures and appreciated.
Some others opined that, by objectifying her body through photographs, which are implausibly idealised, she is propagating the same body image issues she claims she is trying to counteract.
When questioned about nudity, she has admitted that it is just freeing,. In a world where nudity is so easily and often perceived as sexual, her body of work is certainly an inspiration.
