Stripping off for a daring photoshoot, Ben Brooksby posed in the buff as he laid in a truck full of lentils. The 24-year-old farmer, from Victoria, was not afraid to bare all when his photographer friend Emma Cross dared him to take off his kit during the harvest season in 2016.
From there, the young man started The Naked Farmer on Instagram after he failed to find a playful social media account dedicated to farmers. Farmers from all around Australia pose in the buff The Naked Farmer a social media page dedicated to farmers.
And what started as a humble joke has now encouraged hundreds of farmers of all walks of life to snap their very own cheeky rural photographs, from posing on horses to lying naked in a pile of sheep wool. Mr Brooksby said he decided to turn the platform into a good cause by raising awareness about mental illness in the farming community.
His next plans are to hit the road this year to raise more money. And the support he received from everyone so far has been overwhelming.
