Nude vs naked

Une de mes séries (pas encore publiée) s'appelle "naked portrait".

"To be naked is to be oneself.
To be nude is to be seen naked by others and yet not recognized for oneself. A naked body has to be seen as an object in order to become a nude. (...) Nakedness reveals itself. Nudity is placed on display. (...)"

Through Eden took their solitary way

"They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow,
Through Eden took their solitary way."

John Milton. (1608–1674) in Paradise Lost: The Twelfth Book
