Marvelous color contrasts make On the Rocks 24 a simply striking image, but add in an artfully composed nude figure and the frame is taken to a new level of artistic expression. Curled gracefully atop a small, smooth stone surface at left, the nude woman in this frame visually blends into the landscape as if to serve as a commentary on our connectedness to nature.
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 »
