“Narrow Your Focus” – Black & White Body Images…

Black and white darkroom proof sheet...

I’ve read a lot of blog posts over the last week about New Year Resolutions and how we fail to keep these every year! The general consensus is to focus on smaller goals rather than the full picture.

In view of this, I thought it would be appropriate to share a collection of images where I focused on the smaller parts of a whole.

  4. Thanks for the comments!!

    It was fun going through my old stuff looking for these. I couldn’t believe I still had the contact sheet! I’ve moved so much, it’s a miracle.

    I like being able to share them with you all :)

  13. Naked art is something being really controversial, but after looking at these semi naked poses, I totally agree with Bill Henson who once said:
    “Art can seem a force of nature that is beyond anyone’s control and is therefore always potentially disturbing.” But it’s not at all disturbing but inspiring by all means.
