Iwase Yoshiyuki's Nudes

Iwase Yoshiyuki started his photography career in 1920s Japan, photographing the workers who caught dinner from the sea, particularly the female sea-divers who were paid significantly to swim in frigid water to harvest seafood. And, as you might quickly notice, they worked topless quite a bit of the time. His photography isn't purely documentary; he produces art, whether documenting the women's days, or posting women for artistic nude photography. They're very reminiscent of the style of NUS and The Body Beautiful.(via)
