Self-portraits Arno Rafael minkkinena Nude

Arno Rafael Minkkinen nudity equates to spirituality. "I don't want them to think I was a nudist," he says, "But when I walk alone in the woods in Finland, without clothes, as I feel close to the act of creation, you feel that you have been created by the nature". This sense of freedom and desire to Express my emotions the past 40 years, inspired him to a series of self-portraits. "It is because of the nudity the impression that the same could be, say, in 1305". According to the author, these images do not age, because in them there is nothing but the naked body and nature.
