150 Years of Nude Photography

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

The City Museum in Munich, until September 16 2009, have a show titled Nude Visions: 150 years of nude photography. The well curated exhibition and associated book/catalog includes some of my favourite photographers like Will McBride who are sometimes overlooked by similar ventures elsewhere.

Assembled by Ulrich Pohlman and Rudolf Scheutle the book is available in hardcover (ISBN: 978-3-86828-060-9) and softcover (ISBN: 978-3-86828-085-2), published by Kehrer, 2009.

The example of my work in the show is a print from 1964 based on the jail set for Cowboy Kate and shot in my Johannesburg studio. The image below is not the print in the Munich exhibition but it is from the same shoot and appears in the latest edition of Cowboy Kate.

Salon des Refusés – part 3

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

In the course of producing my new book 'Fashion Etcetera' we ended up with a long short list, retouching and rejecting a volume of images almost equal to those that made it into the final book which contains 177 colour images and 114 black and whites.

This is the third post in a blog series featuring shots that hit the cutting room floor. Other photographs in this series can be seen here:
