Nude in NY

Photographing herself naked in everyday situations around New York City, Erica Simone has taken flash photography to a whole new level. Pretty Parisian Erica, 25, rides the subway, shovels snow and buys cigarettes all in the buff for her latest project “Nue York: Self Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen.” Inspired by New York’s fashion week and the French word for naked, ‘nue’, Erica’s birthday suit snaps lay bare her desire to show how everyone is born exactly the same way. Braving arrest while au-naturel in the famously brassy Big Apple, Erica’s brazen art is on display next month at the Dash Gallery in Tribeca.
