WOMEN ARE BEAUTIFUL
Black and White 4x5 and 35mm portraiture
In the mid-80s I bought a 4x5 large format camera (one of those you have to drape a hood over yourself to take photographs). I have always admired the work of large format fashion photographers like Irving Penn and Richard Avedon and was determined to figure out how to shoot large format as a new explorative creative venture.
The beauty that sets women apart from we men is so stark and I have always been inspired to capture that difference on film. In the animal kingdom, it's the males that stand out as beautiful...that is far from true when it comes to the human race. The women have the looks hands down.
