The Beauty Project: Light, Motion and the Human Form.
This series is all shot on film using a variety of different cameras I've collected over the years. I'm always up for experimenting with new films and techniques as I don't know how much longer I'll be able to do it in this digital world.
Bio: Steve Gatlin is a photographer in every sense of the word. Since the age of nine, he has seen the world through a camera lens. He has documented everything from his personal travels and adventures, to weddings and portraits, to covering stories as a Combat Correspondent in the United States Marines Corps. In November of 2003, Gatlin took a photograph that has since started frenzy for his work. It is encompassed in series called The Beauty Project, a series of nudes taken at night in public places. The entire project is shot, processed and printed from film by Gatlin in his own studio, where he has perfected his craft for more than 20 years. In April of 2005, Gatlin co-produced a short documentary about The Beauty Project, which won "Best Documentary" at the Forest International Film Festival in Portland in May. The film was also an "Official Selection" at the Zeitgeist International Film Festival in San Francisco and the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival.
It is this film that has inspired Gatlin to create his next project, "Beauty 24." Steve and his crew traveled the United States from September 1-24, 2005, visiting a new city, in a new state each day to take just one photograph each night on a single roll of film. Beauty 24 consists of a gallery exhibit, feature-length documentary and coffee table book.
The artist feels as though he is just scratching the surface with Beauty, and is setting his sights big on revealing it to the world.
