As a whole, the photographs stand as a record of a series of intimate moments, as well as a type of map: each subject is linked to each other through their experience, not only for the photographer, but the viewer who, even without knowledge of the relationships or chronology, will be aware that each person stood and undressed in the same room for the same woman, before the same lens. 

Each photograph is accompanied by a story of how the subject ended up naked in a small studio office. Some stories began when the photographer and subject were on the playground together as five-year-old children. Others began the moment the subject walked through the door, but each story is meaningful and adds an element of depth and intimacy to the photographs.

The sense of similitude or unity emphasized by the identical situation and setup also serves to highlight the sense of difference regarding the subjects, who vary in age, race, body type and situation. These bodies share pages in this book, not through virtue of their status as photographic subjects, but through the fact that each self, each person, shared a common experience, one that highlighted their differences while providing a lasting link.
