nude in nature
don't let your circumstances change you. for they do not determine where you can go; but rather determine where you start. growing up in small towns Midwest, America - I was an easy target for criticism when I started photographing women in the nude. Ali, why are you showing these explicit images online, what's the purpose of needing to ask someone to be naked, are you gay, and other statements that were followed by strange looks. I never questioned if I was doing something wrong or unconventional and I always gravitated towards the same muse - full of shapes, bare with a humbled energy. the human body. naked, in nature. my hope for this series is that you are reminded of the nature that lives within' your bones & heart. we are here to respect the gift we are given of life & land.
