Self Portrait with Christelle 3
I am just being a bit playful and somewhat sarcastic. Let’s face it, how serious does one get when faced with the creativity of artistic nude photography. I am still doing it… being sarcastic, that is. Of course it’s serious. It’s possibly about the most serious kind of photography next to journalism photography, where covering the victims of a war torn part of the world or the hardships of a third world society that is impoverished and depleted so as to tear-up a photographer, emotionally. Actually, compared to these, this kind of art is not only pleasurable but downright fulfilling. Not to say that it is not emotional. There is a great deal of emotion that passes between photographer and model. It is, at least, for THIS photographer with HIS models.
So look carefully. Observe actively. There it is. One need but to open one’s eyes and see. This is a reality that can not exist in any other way. At least not one that I know of.
