This article focuses on the author's experience of having nude photographs of himself and his girlfriend. He believed that such an action would bridge the distance of their relationship. The nude photographs were an expression of his relationship with his girlfriend. Years later, he discovered that the most important element in the nude photograph was the chair where the photographs were made. The chair was a charged object that reminds of four generations of family history of the author.
