|Cadillac Fine Art Nude Series|
I took these photographs (which I have never exhibited until now) in 1971. At the time, they represented for me an important opportunity to explore the expressive possibilities of the nude form, in black and white, after some years devoted to photographing more familial and community-based forms of intimacy.
While my commitment to these latter forms remains as strong as ever, I am now able and delighted to share these images as well. Much has been written about the use and misuse of the female nude subject. Rather less attention has been given the different, but equally real vulnerabilities of the photographer when she or he undertakes the responsibility to represent that form within the limitations of the medium.
