Clever lighting and carefully-placed arms help preserve Ireland Baldwin's modesty in the arty black and white photos, taken by Tyler Kandel.

The former bikini model, 19, is topless, wearing nothing but a G-string in one shot, and bottomless in another - and she's clearly happy with the snaps, because she has posted them on her page.

It's not clear if Kandel's photos are for a specific campaign or just for the model's personal portfolio.
