Naked People - an ap Apple just doesn't appreciate

One of my models sent me a link to a website she thought I'd like.  It's called Naked People and comes out of Germany.  A man there has photographed 35 people with clothes on, then, when you scroll over the image, you see them naked.  He has men and women of different sizes. 

Here's the blurb on his opening page:

Clothes are our second layer of skin. They disguise, reveal, mirror our innermost being or help to hide it. By wearing certain clothes we can for example give an indication of our profession, our social status or our emotional mood. A business suit makes us guess that theperson behind it is a banker, office worker, insurance agent and so on. In our society it is a sign of trustworthiness. But to which degree is this assumption correct? Can we really trust this cover unreservedly? What is really behind it? Can the illusion be destroyed when all of a sudden a tattoo appears under the suit or does the person remain to be nfathomable? Here you have the opportunity to perceive the different effect between a person dressed in their characteristic clothes and in the nude.
I hope you enjoy the site as much as I did!
