Photojournalist Laurance Ellis' Visit to Cypress Cove

It's been a couple of months since Laurance Ellis visited Florida for an article on nudists. We had a number of volunteers step forward to welcome him with open arms and tell their stories. Laurance was here photographing subjects for an article that appears in the Fall 2022 edition of Document Journal. 

Document Journal is an independent culture, arts, and fashion magazine founded in New York in 2012. Published biannually in the spring and fall, the magazine is printed in book format and distributed globally. Document focuses on American and global culture, and features prominent voices of art, literature, and fashion.

Ellis studied Social Anthropology before embarking on a career as a photographer, initially assisting Mark Lebon in London. Document Journal has been a long-term collaborator of Ellis’s. In the past 3 years, they have dedicated a 26-page portfolio in each print issue to his work, with accompanying essays by Nathaniel Rich (New York Times: Losing Earth: The Decade WeAlmost Stopped Climate Change), Peter Gleik (President-emeritus and co-founder of the Pacific Institute) and Daegan Miller (Author: This Radical Land) amongst others.

Check out the full article here. 

Library Seeks Volunteer Help

The American Nudist Research Library is now open six afternoons a week—like they were before COVID. That is thanks to the efforts of seasonal volunteers. They could use a couple more year-round volunteers to run the library one afternoon each week.

Right now, our biggest need is for volunteers to scan magazines, books, and loose papers—also for people to put those papers in chronological order before scanning.  Seasonal or occasional volunteers are welcome. To find out more, go to the library on a Tuesday afternoon and talk with library president Paul LeValley.

Over the past few months, the library has bought copies of children's books about nudism. They now have every preschool through high school book that they know about.  Their video collection has also grown, and library members can check them out. Go in and see all the new things the library has to offer.

Zumba Gold Chair Class

We are excited to announce Cypress Cove will be having Zumba Gold Chair classes Mondays at 1 pm in the clubhouse. Join Lisa for this awesome workout weekly! These classes will last about 45 minutes. Zumba Chair is Zumba done entirely seated and is suitable for various groups, including seniors and individuals with limited ambulatory ability. It is fun, uplifting, and even healing.
