I photograph art nudes and fashion. Actually, lately I've been feeling like doing more clothed shots with a surreal twist (which I guess is not quite what this site is about, oh dear!) My work has been shown in various exhibitions and I had a book of art nudes published in 2014. This was mostly nudes in the environment, shot digitally. Since then I have been doing more large-format film work, Polaroids etc. My aim is to show the nude as wholesome, honorable, and evocative of the simple joy of being alive. I do not aim to make "sexy" shots since I figure that has been done to death in the mass media. Often my favorite nude photos turn out to have been taken by women, and I aim for that feel in the photographs I take - I would like the images to show modern, empowered women portrayed as women would like to be portrayed - not as passive victims of the male gaze. Whether I succeed in that is open to debate!
