Iniciales: The Rejection of Modern Shame.

In the chaotic realm of Spain in the 1930s, many circles of socialism and anarchism formed to replace the outdated monarchy and the simmering fascist dissidents who wanted God and order to take center stage. Most of these factions dedicated their lives and bodies to save the world with Marxism and other utopian ideals. A handful of these groups avoided the world, ignored the growing battles to find comfort and health in the beginning of the modern era. The wild men and women of Spain, the nudists and naturists, hid from technology and vices to take part in mankind’s natural destiny.

Let the world die and enjoy the sun with your tender skin.

Then comes Iniciales, a short-lived magazine that published essays on anarchism, naturism, sex, education, dance, and criticisms against drugs and alcohol.

“Nudism is an elixir for sexual embarrassment. Nudism is the elixir to ennoble thoughts and to give life and beauty to the body. Nudism is health, nobility, and freedom.” Translated from the cover of Iniciales Magazine.
