Photo Gallery: Nude Mountain Journey [NSFW]

Photographer Jim Mangan’s first book of fine art nudes brought us to the wintry back-country of Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains and sent us snowboarding vicariously down the snowy slopes without our clothes on, in joyous abandon. Following up on Winter’s Children , Mangan has released the second installment of his rebirth trilogy — Color’d . With a group of accomplices, Mangan took to the lakes and flowering meadows of Utah’s Uinta Mountains, where his subjects abandoned both their clothes and societal labels. Nude, wild, and slathered up in richly pigmented bear fat, they ventured deep into the forest, high up the rocky hillside and, finally, down into the water, splashing as the colors spread out like liquid auras. Take an abridged version of their journey with our slideshow of Mangan’s saturated, grainy, instant 35mm film shots.
