Photographer Beck Diefenbach was tasked with recording the legal battles around nudity in San Francisco — while still keeping his images safe for print
If you're not from the Bay Area you might not have heard, but San Francisco is in the midst of a legal upheaval. The city is set to remove the right for public nudity (except at special events), ending the city's long run of tacit endorsement of people wandering around the streets stark naked. So how does a photographer capture these events (and the ensuing nude protests) without falling afoul of their papers nudity rules? Very, very carefully.
