About Me

Years of taking photographs of Fitness Models for the American magazine Men’s Workout have developed Hans Fahrmeyer's interest in the human body as a sculptural form. The sensual and sinuous twists of Fahrmeyer's subjects can be as dramatically accented with light and shade as they are enhanced by regular physical training. "Body sculpture becomes for me a feeling that I create with light, in the same way that an artist uses his brush." says the largely self-taught photographer.

After travelling throughout Europe and Asia, German-born Fahrmeyer settled in New York in 1984 and has since produced work that has appeared in numerous magazines including Time, Newsweek, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Madame and Connoisseur. Now his obsession with documenting the beauty of male and female nudes is presented in the book Between Men And Women.

In over 120 photographs Fahrmeyer explores the interaction between the sexes. "I like to juxtapose opposing elements. I use bodies in a totally different way from how they are usually portrayed. In my work they are sometimes fused, sometimes close and sometimes separate like in a marriage," he explains.

Despite the overt sensuality of Fahrmeyer's subjects he regards his photographic execution as displaying "elegance without being sexual, achieved by choosing a backdrop and lighting that gives them an air of classicism. There's so much ugliness out there, sometimes we need beauty to stimulate us and relax our eyes."'
