Bench I

'Bench' Series

Gallery, Landscape, Portrait, Series

The inspiration for this series of photographs was the juxtaposition of a simple stylish oak bench with the elegance of the natural human form. The proposition was to take the bench as a starting point and allow the model to create poses rather than provide detailed directions. Some models are endlessly creative and inventive with such a simple piece of wood. It is a real litmus test for the true art model and I continue to use this when working with a new models.
This series of photographs was taken in our home studio with varied studio lighting depending on the pose and feel I was aiming for.
