"Feliz Paloma has a wonderful way of bringing something different to nude photography. He is able to bring out a very personal sense of intimacy with his models, something that allows the viewer to connect in a special way....to feel involved. Sometimes quite erotic, and other times boldly innovative (but best of all are the times when the two are combined), Feliz Paloma's work is delicious and inspiring!"

Photography of the naked body does not have to be pornographic. It can be artful, celebratory, and reverential. My process begins with the straightforward appreciation of the human body, first from a primal place, then adding layers of geometry and personality. I hope to go beneath the surface of skin. Not only glorifying the body, but also the complex dance of personality, particular time and place, mood, light. My models are not static objects, but collaborators. Spontaneity and improvisation are the way, an openness to possibilities.
