Define Beauty: Nipples Matt Lambert confronts the censorship of nipples in contemporary culture on NOWNESS

Dear Shaded Viewers,

“The shame of intimacy affects so many of us. It’s something that I’m constantly battling with,” explains filmmaker and photographer Matt Lambert of his provocative new film: Nipples. Returning to our landmark Define Beauty series, he breathlessly unmasks the scandal and contradiction of nipples in today’s society, where women’s nipples have become the subject of erasure and concealment on social media; while the male is let slip.

“The male nipple is let slip while the female is censored or removed”

“As benign as they may be, nipples have been the catalyst for major conversations that reach across gender, sexuality, and the absurd double-standards in digital censorship,” explains the Berlin and London-based filmmaker.”
