The human form has been the subject of artistic creations since the dawn of time, at least since humans first started making fertility statues back in the stone age.  Photographs of the naked form have been made since the dawn of photography, less than 200 years ago.  Sometimes the intent of the photographer or viewer is to appreciate the grace and beauty of the human form.  Sometimes, particularly when key parts of the naked form are not visible,  there may be some degree of erotic flavor in the graceful shape of the form.

The portrayal of the naked form has a long history and many of my images are informed by that history.   A few of my photographs may be breaking new ground, such as my multi-pose long exposure work.  

If you are offended by the naked form, please close this page.  If you are interested in working with me as a model, feel free to contact me.
