A group of photography subjects brave bugs and breezes to celebrate nature in the buff.
California: “OK, shoes off, watches off, jewelry off,” Jack Gescheidt calls out to a few dozen people milling around in a cluster of coast live oaks in a forest near Santa Cruz. “And watch out for poison oak!”
Squint and you can almost imagine you’re at one of the outdoor wedding ceremonies Gescheidt, 56, has photographed. He’s midway up a stepladder, his camera mounted on a tall tripod, speaking through a cardboard megaphone. “Closer together, everyone. You two, are you a couple? Be like a couple—don’t stand so far apart.”
