“I am (n)u(e)rban II” will be the second volume of my photography book full of unique nude urban photographs at worldwide metropolises. A wonderful combination of beauty, life and freedom!

Vienna Love – model for nude urban photography

My name is Vienna … named in affection to my wonderful home city. Since about 7 years I work successful as a model for nude urban photography next to my own business as graphic designer. With the help of awesome funders we could realize the publication of my first urban nude-art photobook “I am (n)u(e)rban” in December 2015.

Within a crowdfunding campaign in August 2015 we achieved our target of 12.000 $ what makes us able to bring the first volume to market within 3 months from campaign end. It’s still an amazing feeling to hold it in hands and I am so grateful to got all the support during the realization last year.

Thanks to all the great and encouraged feedbacks we are planning now to come up with a second volume at the end of 2016, exactly one Year after launching the first part. All previous incomes of book selling of the first volume were directly re-invested for traveling cost and equipment cost to take new sets of spectacular nude urban pictures in cities like Brussels, New York, London and much more.

Let me tell you something about the project and my intentions behind. I am sure, there are a lot of long-time supporter and admire which read now my lines, so it’s nothing new for you and I just can say thank you for being there! But I also want to reach new groups to come on board of this peaceful project!

Real situations

Most important for me to mention is, that all my pictures show real situations, they are never staged or organised and nobody around is involved in the scene. Imagine the following situation:

The catholic cathedral Cologne in April, a well chosen place for one of my shootings ... the place where it came to sexualized attacks on women in the last new year’s eve night by Arabic immigrants, which causes a heated social and politic debate about religion and in particular Islam in Germany and far beyond its borders! ... but things happened in another way then expected. The picture below isn’t staged. It shows me together with a Muslim girl which accidently was at the place during our shooting. She watched the scenery interested so that I spontaneously but with fast heartbeat decided to ask her about a common photo. And to my astonishment she really agreed to do this picture together with me. Can happen something more wonderful?!?! That is all I dream for - freedom and tolerance without religious and social borders! The picture and her agreement show, sexual violence and oppression isn’t a problem of religion, it’s much rather a problem of manhood and enlightenment! Doesn't the picture prove it!?

A picture is worth a thousand words

What is normal?

My nude urban photographs should inspire you to think about clichés and the prescribed “normal” way of life. Our today’s society treats the greatest miracle - the human body - as it is something bad as if you have to shame for it. Parents covers the eyes of their child when they see somebody nude on TV but on the other hand it is the most normal thing on earth that our child can see weapons and violent everywhere. And here we are back at the initial question: What is “normal”?! What means not normal? Am I not normal if I don’t force myself into society constrains no matter if they are against our nature?

Nude is natural!

The project is not about doing something sexually or to provoke somebody, it’s simply about being myself as I was born, nude! Deliberately I don’t hide and do some oouuuhhh flashing the skirt pics in the backyard, no I go to the most famous points in the world and doing the same as everybody else. Stroll around, posing for sightseeing pictures, doing selfies … all the “normal” things but I do it in the nude. Have a look and decide by yourself if it’s something bad or dangerous, is it something not normal or just something very peaceful and sensual.

8.500 $ for 100% peacefulness and 100% happiness

Based on the experiences of my first book “I am (n)u(e)rban” volume 1, I set up a minimum budget of 8.500 € to achieve the project. 

BTW ... you can save a signed hardcover exemplar of volume 1 as one of my great rewards or find it at the self publishing platform blurb in hardcover, softcover (http://www.blurb.com/user/Viennalove) and ebook (http://www.blurb.com/ebooks/583512-i-am-n-u-e-rban) format.

All proceeds of this campaign will be used to 75% for book production and marketing for the 2nd volume and 25% to fulfil the fund rewards.

Planned Book Launch - December 2016

It’s planned to publish the second part of “I am (n)u(e)rban” in December 2016, what means exact 1 year after the official launch of the first part.

Fantastic rewards for your support

Together we can make it come true! It’s our sign against all sexual oppression and violence around the world. Come on board and become part of the project. For your support I have come up with some fantastic and personal rewards. Already at the last crowdfunding campaign it was wonderful to meet some special supporter in person. These were unforgettable moments! If you have questions about the campaign or you want to give your personal opinion or suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact me!  

With kind regards and lots of love  

Vienna Love

Risks and challenges

Based on the experiences of the first volume there are no relevant risks for the book launch when the project is successfully financed. The design is already fixed and a print will be most probably done in the same printery as for the first volume, so the costs are well known.
Therefor the biggest risk is to run out of timeline, which would however only lead to a slight shift of the launch date. All rewards are 100% safe when we reach the minimum target.
