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.
