Today is the 22nd anniversary of my first art nude photographs, which were made at a workshop in Woodstock, New York, on August 19, 1995. As I have been doing since my 15th anniversary in 2010, I have been making a post on this day (or shortly thereafter one year when I forgot) showing one photograph from each calendar year that I have photographed nudes.
As for how often I have been photographing this past year, it really has not been a lot. My first photos for the year were made last month on my trip to England, and the previous art nudes I had before then were back in August of last year. Some people feel the need to photograph every month (or even more frequently), but I can go about eleven months without doing so and feel like I’ve picked up where I’ve left off. Despite that long absence from photographing nudes – or perhaps because of it – I have been trying to do more figure photography recently, with more planned for the next month or so, while the warm weather holds up.
Anyway, here are the photographs. Enjoy.
