The Body Book: The Good Fight
I guess these anatomical landscapes are the pics that did it this time. Personally, I don't find the human body offensive or racy. I think it is beautiful and I say, with no modesty at all, that when I am photographing it, the human body is CERTAINLY beautiful!
I really like the term 'anatomical landscapes'. It is what I see when I look at the body - both as a photographer and as a fitness fanatic.
As a photographer and as a gay male, I don't find anything EVER offensive about a man without his shirt...
What I love about the anatomical landscapes is how, if I do my job right, the viewer has to (sometimes) really LOOK to see what they are seeing. It requires some thought, some work. I like work.
In my life I have been asked to do this kind of shot (below) for a LOT of women. You should see them. They're beautiful.
Maybe the man below is the latest photo to get me censored from Facebook. I don't see any more in this picture, though, than I do when I see peoples' photos of their weekends on Fire Island..
It's a nice body but it is, after all, just a nice body. For me, this body shot is all about the face.
Below is one of my favourite of the lanscapes! Looks like something you would ski on, no?
