The Nude Photographer: A Trevor Christensen´s project
#NudePortraits is a conceptual portrait series where Trevor Christensen (website) photographs clothed subjects in the nude.
As a photographer I’m deeply interested in the experience subjects undergo as I take their picture. When I guide subjects through the portrait process I seek to create a calm, comfortable environment where they can be at ease in front of the camera. Despite my best efforts, subjects often feel vulnerable during the process. No matter the scenario, this power imbalance is almost inescapable part of the experience.
The photographer/subject paradigm is one of inequality. Nude Portraits is about leveling the playing field in an unorthodox way. Instead of focusing on bringing the subject to a place of ease--where I am, this project brings me to a place of vulnerability.- explains Trevor Christensen-
Trevor is always looking for subjects, both in Utah where he is based, and out of the state. Send him an email with your location and any ideas you may have for your shoot to get more information about participating.
