21 Years

Untitled Nude, 1995

Untitled Nude, 1995

Today is August 19.  I remember what I was doing on this date last year – just as I remember what I was doing on this date 21 years ago.
On that earlier date, in 1995, I was at a workshop in Woodstock, New York, making my first art nude photographs.  Last year on this date I was back at Woodstock with nine models and my good friend Dave Levingston to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the event.  It was something that I had thought about doing for several years, and believe it or not, it actually happened!
I had thought of doing some photography today, too, but the schedules of the people I had hoped to work with wouldn’t permit it.  However, I do have some photo sessions planned for the near future, so that will have to suffice.
As I have done for the past several years, beginning with my 15th anniversary, here is a selection of art nude photographs that I have made over the years, featuring one photograph from each year that I have photographed nudes.
Enjoy.

  1. I look back at my early work, and I see promise, and too the eye. IMO that’s what makes the artist: having the eye. You can refine it, but nothing will give you that eye. Yours seems to be working fine Dave. 🙂
