For the three years from 2008 until 2011, photographer Scott Nichol rented and worked in a large studio space to create some of his most striking works of figure photography. This new space presented a larger canvas that allowed him to photograph the nude figure with a more ambitious approach and allowed perspectives that were nearly impossible outside this space. Working on this larger stage afforded the work a sense of presence, both physically and emotionally.
This collection of 61 photographs explores the contemporary nude through themes of introspection, vulnerability, and empowerment. The pieces selected for this collection were mostly shot with traditional medium and large format film cameras, old Polaroid cameras, along with modern digital cameras.

Dan is in a desperate fight to beat this disease and with no health care, this is more than an uphill battle for Dan and Nori. So, a few of us photographer types have decided to put together a benefit art sale to try to help them out.
Below are details about the artwork that will be for sale in Olaf's studio at the beginning of this month. The collection will then move to the Connexions Gallery in Easton, PA where it will be on display and for sale for
back in the spring of 2007 i started to follow a lot of figure photographers who were doing really wonderful work photographing nudes in landscapes and i knew this was something that i wanted to do. i knew it would be the next step in my growth as a figure photographer. without much of an idea what i was doing or how to find the best locations, i set out to do the best i could and create images with meaning and artistic merit.
