About MeI am a very experienced photographic artist. I recently had my first solo exhibition at the Visual Space Gallery in Vancouver as part of the Capture Photo Festival. Current project is called "A Singular Beauty - Exploring the Female Form with Instant Film"
Here is my artist statement:
The five areas of photography which explore the nude are limited by unwritten rules, visual jargon and self-imposed censorship. Porn has fallen into a state of visual uniformity which has become quite boring. The fine art nude, with its detached models, lacks spontaneity. Erotic images lack accessibility. Glamour is too synthetic. Snapshots lack any sense of the narrative.
But, each of these five areas has something to offer. They offer possibility which can inspire. Porn is not shy; fine art acknowledges the beauty of the female form; erotica stimulates; glamour idealizes; snapshots are real.
By combining these possibilities with the authenticity of instant film, visual opportunities are created where the sexuality and beauty of the female form can be explored with passion and without judgement.
Series 1 was shot between 2007 and 2012 using 17 different models. Series 2 will be shot this fall (2016). A gallery exhibition is planned for 2017 with a book to follow thereafter.
If you are interested in being photographed as part of this project, please contact me.
