Participants responded to a social media post from John asking for women to volunteer for a women-only nude photography shoot to embrace and be proud of their bodies. The images were then used by John to create a portrait of each model in his well-known bold use of vibrant colour and signature gold lines. The call out attracted the attention of hundreds of followers, with models including a breast cancer survivor, influencer and mother.
Commenting on the collection, John Charles, said: “I have been dabbling with life drawings and nude pieces for a while and I wanted this collection to be a showcase of the differences and strength of the female body. The photoshoot was an incredible day. This process has enabled me to meet 11 of the most amazing, inspiring women I have ever had the honour to work with and it has been an honour to paint these beautiful individuals. I can’t wait to showcase this collection on 30th July 2022.
