A deserted bridge, a creative model, and an imposing concrete slab. Emily strikes a clever pose and is framed by curvature receding into the background. Her dynamic figure stretches as if sliding off into the distance. She extends her arms in an admiration of the texture of the concrete that is unnoticed yet unapologetic of her exit.
From my Industrial Nudes theme. This collection of images sets the nude form against unnatural environments of concrete, chrome, mechanization, and grit. The series contemplates the contrast between the mechanical and the organic, the clean and the gritty. Even the strongest human body is slight and delicate when compared to the rigid, bulky elements of the industrial backdrops. It is, at its base, a commentary that compares an idealized “human as an animal” to humanity’s perpetual expansion into nature. This theme celebrates beauty and achievement by showcasing icons of mechanization in conjunction with the splendor of the human form.
