The exercise was to shift the viewers attention from “primordial triggering” by figurative surface details to the observation of beauty coming from the form’s essence.
The Focus Forms series was the first human form body of work I created after studying at Rochester Institute of Technology. All works were photographed using my favorite film camera, the Nikon F4 (designed by Giugiaro). Every piece was intentional photographed out of focus, looking for the perfect balance of beauty in curvature while using the mechanical control to blur – dissolve the minds eye relation to the composition of the human form. There was no photoshop or digital manipulation used in the making of these images. Everything was created in camera or negatives were scratched unintentionally.
