The balance between nature and humanity takes center stage in Spiral, where a gracefully perched nude woman stands at the center of a concentric series of circles etched into the salt flats that surround her. Her powerful pose combined with her delicate balance makes this image as much a study of the equilibrium in the universe as it is a breathtaking nude photograph.
About the Artist
Craig Colvin is an award winning photographer and educator based in San Jose, CA. Craig's primary focus is using the human body as art. This is expressed in many forms but his goal is to use the body to mimic the shapes and curves that are found in nature. This might be the gentle slope of a sand dune, a curve of a rock, or the rolling hills of a mountain range. Making a body conform to natural formations re-enforces this similarity between the nature of the body and the nature of the land.
Craig's work has been published in numerous magazines and books, and exhibited in galleries and shows worldwide. He teaches photography workshops throughout the US and online photography courses through This Week in Photography School. more »
