John Cornicello, Seattle, WA USA Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement
I photograph because I have to.
The experience of collaborating with a another artist (the model) is the point of photography for me. That we end up with a beautiful image to share with the world is secondary. Process over result. The collaboration is a performance with two or more actors who are equals of each other. Unrehearsed. The people in the photographs are not objects. They are real people who are integral to the process.
I photograph people because they are, to me, the ultimate form of beauty. People photos are also a form of self-portrait and reflection of my inner thoughts and feelings.
Photographing the figure is fun. It is never work. It is also a very personal learning experience for both model and photographer.
This collection showcases fine art nude photographs that make great wall art. Both male and female figures are represented in this collection.
