Naked Odyssey 2020

Inspired by participation in nude outdoor photo shoots for Spencer Tunick, Matt Granger and Natansky – some pre-organised, others guerilla-style – I resolved that, from 2016, impromptu naked photography would be a part of all my world travels…

Albania in February and March

For our trip to Albania, Esther and I stayed in Tirana and visited the coast at Durrës. We loved its relaxed pace of life, good fresh food and an apparent absence of multi-national corporations. Then, just eight days after we returned to London, WHO declared a global COVID-19 pandemic and the world locked down.

England in July

By pure luck, a week-off arranged last year just happened to coincide with the first week in which holidays were allowed in post-lockdown England. We duly spent 9 nights in Kendal, Cumbria and enjoyed masked travels in the Lake District and surrounds, taking in lakes, rivers, stone circles, megaliths, peaks and bays.

England in August

With options for travel abroad still highly limited and bound-up by restrictions, we veered to the UK’s south coast. Obvious destinations were overbooked or overpriced, so we took the path less travelled, to Havant. From there we walked three islands: Hayling to the south, Thorney to the east and Portsea to the west.


Hayling Island west, on the beach – location map.


Thorney Island south, on the defensive – location map.


Portsea Island south, on the shoreline – location map.

the odyssey will continue…
