Cell Phone Camera - 3x3 Grids of a Nude in the Studio
Dates2017 - Ongoing
I am working with a cell phone camera to create 3 x 3 GRID images of nudes. I began to make multiple images of the nude in a grid in 1967 while beginning my MFA in Photography Thesis at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I came back to grids in 1992 with the Nimslo Camera, a Sterio 3D camera. And later with the Action Tracker Camera in 1999, a camera intended to capture images in time.
I have been photographing the nude for over 50 years, exploring different cameras, processes and techniques. From the beginning of my working with the nude, I have been interested in making an image that says something, not just a pretty image. I have been interested in the multiple image and how again time is a part of the dynamic of these images.
