It takes a lot of guts to stand naked in front of a camera, to let it record, to let it see – you. To produce nude portraits. Some of these images have remained, fixed in tiny silver grains, for nearly thirty years.

Others were created quite recently and are just beginning their journey to become a record of what was rather than what is.

To stand naked in front of a camera takes guts – it opens up the sitter to flattery or, from the more stupid in society ridicule. Earlier I used the word sexy – is this right? Or is that irrelevant – just a male point of view?
These photographs are just that – photographs. They are designed to be viewed and provoke a reaction in the viewer – beyond that they have no function.
