The act of making a photograph is a subjective process of intuitive visual discovery careening toward an often unknown end.
The same qualities of landscape―sweep of curve and contrasts between textures―are present in the body of a woman. Embodied in silky-smooth skin are arcing contours of glowing light.
A dynamic nude creates an atmosphere of excitement, anticipation, and fear electrified by natural sexual tension. Someone eager to mold her body into an expressive gesture can experience not only curiosity and anticipation, but also a feeling of vulnerability and hesitation. Overcoming self-consciousness while appearing nude in front of an another person evolves over time. It requires trust and a belief that the qualities of form and gesture the photographer seeks are worth making oneself emotionally vulnerable.
Model and artist walk along the edge of possibility, merging body pose with artistic vision. Her body and spirit uniquely contribute to a story worth seeing. In so doing the photographer celebrates the uniqueness of the model's body personality. They become poised in a dance to capture a fleeting moment in time and place. In no other experience does opportunity favor a prepared mind and eager body receptive to the sensuous possibilities.
