Art nude photography portfolio
This art nude photography portfolio is an unapologetic celebration of the female form. These images invite the viewer to explore a dreamlike world on this visual journey to an unknown destination. The artwork is exploratory; a pastiche of borrowed cultural perceptions and glimpses into an alternate reality that is tantalizingly close to that of our own. This vision at times pays homage to traditional themes and at other times challenges them. This chosen perspective of beauty is neither overwrought with eroticism nor obligated to modesty.
At its core, the creative process of these images is independent of medium. When creating a photograph, A. K. Nicholas take the same considerations he would as with a painting: choosing each color, and where to place each element. In some cases, he combines several images to achieve a final result. Also as if painting, A. K. might combine an image of a hand or leg from other photographs in a session to get the shape or position that he wants. Some compositions are barely touched while in others, his effort is quite obvious.
It’s often said, photographs are “frozen moments.” In the case of A. K. Nicholas, they are moments of fiction. These are artistic hallucinations. They exist the way a compelling story exists in literature or in a stage play: the actor is real but the character is two-dimensional illusion.
It is not his intention to impress solely with technique, but rather to cultivate thoughts and emotions. Formally trained, A. K. Nicholas’s unrelenting passion and inability to compromise are apparent in this art nude photography portfolio.
