Nude Photography and Digital Art
Presented is a collection of eight photographs on the female form from multiple
projects spanning the last 7 years. Included is work produced as part of the
photography program at the Art Institute of San Antonio on the female form in
modern photography as well as recent projects completed in Lead, S.D. Projects
include abstract nude forms, contemporary fine art fetish photos, and recent
work of the nude abstracted with multi-color paint.
The abstracted nude photography project was started as a study of the nude form
in contemporary art. The project seeks to explore abstracting the form through
various methods to produce art that creates the emotional response of a nude
photo while being accepted by modern censorship. The original thesis produced
at the Art Institute explored the difference of censorship between violence and
nudity in America. In the internet age, we have grown to censor the nude form
more and more as accessibility becomes easier. The project seeks to push the
boundaries of modern censorship and create emotionally compelling art works. A
combination of professional and armature models as well a volunteers were used
to present women of all shapes and sizes to celebrate all forms of beauty. The
works are deliberately cropped and edited to display bodies without identification
to focus on the form and not the person.
