The Intimate Image

January 18, 2016

It can be kind of daunting to be photographed at the best of times, the camera’s gaze can feel scrutinizing when it fact it just observes and records precious moments. Still, deciding to do an intimate image series can be quite confronting. Not for me, I love it, but for the nude person in my lounge it can feel weirderama.

It’s not just about a nearly naked body and a camera because something happens when you’re in this intimate space and all sorts of emotions and memories can arise. We experience something together and it’s very intimate for both of us. It’s also funny, and liberating and joyous, and this shoot was no exception.

This lady is my friend, and she is one of the strongest, most generous, loving and caring women I’ve ever known. I was honoured when she asked if I’d photograph her, and I’m thrilled that she has allowed me to share a handful of these images with you guys.

This was one of my favorite shoots of all time.
