FINE ART NUDE PHOTO CHALLENGE, 2O16

What happens when you take a dozen or so photographers with completely different styles and backgrounds, and you take away their assistants, their Photoshop, their lights, their hair, makeup and wardrobe stylists?  You give them one hour with a nude model they've never met, in a location they've never seen before. No creative teams to lean upon and nothing to hide behind beyond their raw talent.

Well, that's precisely the question we aimed to answer with the opening show. I shall let you be the judge from the results below, but urge you to look also beyond the image to see what each reveals about each photographer.

Art buyers. All the photographs below are available for sale through the gallery at mutually friendly prices. Have your people call my people.
