Late photographer/artist Robert Mapplethorpe was once quoted as saying “I’m looking for the unexpected. I’m looking for things I’ve never seen before.”
These words have resonated with me for some time, and have been a driving motivation when working with art nude models.
I like to challenge all involved in a particular project to strive for this creative innovation.
Sometimes this means going beyond what was originally planned, and allowing the imagination to move a shoot in other directions.
One might say that the final image was a result of a creative accident, but I like to think of it as pushing ourselves to go further until the desired result is finally realized.
