Five acts, five chapters, five editions in five years—and more than 1,000 photographs by over 150 photographers. THE OPÉRA, Magazine for Classic & Contemporary Nude Photography, has been celebrating the essence and expression of human beings in all their facets and nuances for half a decade. Irrespective of the conventions of the fashion industry and ideals of beauty, international photo artists stage the human body as a natural work of art, as drama and stage at the same time. They always examine the feelings and stories of their models with dignity and respect for the personality of the individual. On the occasion of the five-year existence of the magazine, the editor Matthias Straub is publishing a one-of-a-kind special edition with all five editions in a limited slipcase.
