Throughout the years, the human figure has been envisioned and represented in every medium imaginable. Much has been explored in different forms of art, especially in photography. Nudity is where most photographers would like to delve into, and it doesn’t come as a surprise for there is no limit to the beauty found in the human body. The owner of the body may get old, the human figure, as a subject, doesn’t.
They say that if we want to prove the existence of God, look at nature and witness the innumerable beauty of his creations. That same idea inspired me to try nude photography. One can search for beauty anywhere, but I need not go very far; I choose to seek beauty in the many facets of the human figure. That though there may be a thin line separating art and pornography, I want my images to go far beyond an interpretation of another graceful figure. Nudity is not something to be ashamed of, but it is not something to be exploited either.
