Nude Portraits. (photos)

Nude Portraits.

“We’re born naked, and the rest is drag.” ~ RuPaul 

Please get naked before viewing these photographs. 😉

“As a photographer I’m deeply interested in the experience subjects have during portrait shoots. When I guide subjects through the process of making their photo, I seek to create a calm, comfortable environment where they can be at ease in front of the camera. Despite my best efforts, subjects often feel a sense of vulnerability during the process. No matter the scenario, this power imbalance seems like an almost inescapable part of the experience.

The photographer/subject paradigm is one of inequality. Nude Portraits is about leveling the playing field in an unorthodox way. Instead of focusing on bringing the subject to a place of ease, where I am, this project brings me to a place of vulnerability.

This vulnerability is achieved by making portraits without clothing. These are nude portraits in the sense that I, the photographer, am nude, while the subject is not.”

I am always looking for subjects both in Utah, where I am based, and out of the state. Send me an email to find out more information about participating.”

A photographer in Utah started a nude portrait series. From his website, “These are nude portraits in the sense that I, the photographer, am nude, while the subject is not.”
