ABOUT

The body alone sings songs in its own language, and I want to write down the lyrics with my camera.

I've always been fascinated with fine art and sculptures. Going through museums and seeing marble torsos welcoming patrons around the world has always left me in awe. It really inspired me to do a series strictly focused on human form and all its beautiful angles. With this love of art, I wanted to mix fine art posing and classical composition to do a series that really embodies body language in its infinite form.

Having to capture pose in a regular photograph requires capturing expression, and that added element shifts focus and leaves the form as a secondary point. Allowing me to focus strictly on pose and shape while adjusting lightening specifically for the body yields these results. I want you to almost see the emotion painted across the body lines.

This will be a continual series and this is my pioneer set!
