i am always interested in how photographers perceive their subjects, so i enjoyed checking out not just the photos but the accompanying essays on the website for the gallery show "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" at Michael Mazzeo Gallery.
here are some of photographer Josh Quigley's thoughts on his subject, Bruce (above).
"Bruce is a nudist and I thank him for it. Bruce provided me with an opportunity to capture so much of what I have been trying to convey in my work in one image. I cannot tell you in words my revelation because you need to discover it for yourself. Try being naked for a day, take a walk in the woods, and ask yourself, “Where do I belong in this world?” Bruce knows."
