Decription

The fine art nude has been a celebrated subject of photography since the beginning and has played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the nude has been featured in a classical pose and setting, maturing to illustrating the human body as a sculptural abstraction, and with some pushing boundaries.

This year we are celebrating the natural nude- the figure in the environment, whether natural or man made. We are not looking for classic studio work but we are looking for photographers who can make a statement. Stop us in our tracks and make us see more in the image.

Our juror for Kim Weston. Kim Weston is a fine art photographer from California who specializes in nude photography. Weston was born to one of the most influential and creative families in American history and has been making fine-art nude photographs for over 35 years. Kim learned his craft assisting his father, Cole Weston, in the darkroom making gallery prints from the original negatives of his grandfather, Edward Weston. Kim also worked for many years as an assistant to his uncle, Brett Weston, whose bold, abstract photographs ranked him as the "child genius of American photography."
