Credo:
I believe, as did the ancient Greeks, that the female form is the embodiment of the divine. It is with this classical attitude that I photograph a woman's body. All of my models are collaborative artists and our mutual empathy is the fertile ground from which images of beauty and spirit may rise. Photography is my way of feeling, touching, loving, and revealing the Goddess within.

I have been involved in fine art photography for over forty years as a photographer and collector. The most fruitful seeds were sown in the early 1970's when I studied with legends such as Paul Caponigro, Andre Kertesz, Arnold Newman, George Tice and George Krauss. From these artists I acquired a deep appreciation for the medium and its expressive capabilities.

In 1998 I began a ten year endeavor which resulted in a world class collection of the most important fine art photography books of the late 19th and 20th centuries. This collection now resides at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester NH.

My passion for images is now focused on discovering the wealth of photographic art to be found at on-line sites such as this.
Interests
To date I've captured over 34,000 images of beautiful young women! Enough to keep me busy processing for a while. Although I've published 59 on DA today I have more to upload and thousands more to process. They are here for those who have a true appreciation for the female form as a divine work of art.

Quietly and contemplatively selecting the best images from so many photo sessions is one of the rewards of fine art nude photography. Even more rewarding is developing the images to best reveal the true physical beauty and spirit of my collaborators. Each young woman brings her own unique energy to a session and her own sense of the beautiful and it is my labor of love to do justice to their beauty.

Let me know what you think and how you feel about these images and please have respect for these women.

Best,
J

Thank you for the favourite, John and I couldn't agree more with your interpretation of the classic fine art nude. It exactly surmises why I photograph the female nude and try to interpret its inherant beauty.

John, your work is simply astounding. By no means, I am a prude, but I often dislike the so-called "artistic nude" photography because I sense a voyeuristic attitude in it. Your perception of the female form, in contrast, in full of respect and true appreciation, and that I cherish very much. Thank you for all the beauty! :)
