I started shooting this project over 8 years ago with no clue exactly where it was going to go. The beginning shoots were shot as i was learning high key lighting and made a lot of mistakes with a lot of learning along the way. Each shoot evolved the direction I wanted to take with the project. After years of editing and re-editing each of the subjects I have photographed, I present my semi-anonymous nude project, Stripped Down. The faces and the human forms presented in separate galleries. I wanted to create an interactive experience for the viewer. Not all of the faces and the forms will have matching counterparts.
I have been amazed by the human body since I was a child. I blame growing up reading comic books with their over emphasized proportions and my mother’s fashion magazines. As I approach 40 years old, my fascination with the human body only continues to grow as time and age wear on each of us.
