Thanks everyone for the great shoutouts!
Photography of the naked body does not have to be pornographic. It can be artful, celebratory, and reverential.
My process begins with the straightforward appreciation of the human body, first from a primal place, then adding layers of geometry and personality. I hope to go beneath the surface of skin. Not only glorifying the body, but also the complex dance of personality, particular time and place, mood, light. My models are not static objects, but collaborators. Spontaneity and improvisation are the way, an openness to possibilities. Then pursuit of vision: mine, the models, a third party, all together.
I believe the human body is among the most beautiful ‘things’ on earth. From a purely geometric point of view, the body, especially the female body, has deep primal roots in our being, as the creator of life. Our culture has repressed this, fearful of the awesome power of the feminine. But that power cannot be denied, and so we have pornography and misogyny running rampant. Can we not celebrate the glory of the body, of sex and eroticism even, without losing grasp of our humble awe and heartfelt respect for our bodies.
