Requesting photos from ordinary, everyday people in a straightforward standing pose, purely for drawing reference.
You would not believe how difficult it is to find simple, standing images of nudes, without asking/nagging/pleading with friends/family/facebook et al.
ANONYMOUS NUDES PROJECT
A series of black ink drawings, largely cross-hatched... Giving ANYONE, of any size, shape, age (over-18), race or gender (though I do need more female models than male now), the opportunity to pose nude, whilst protecting their anonymity. In the process, I remove all the trappings of the 21st century (clothes/tattoos, jewellery) and replace the landscape, scenery and context with one from an imagined theme.
It's gone really well so far, I think...
Please send all submissions, anonymous or otherwise, based on the poses below, to firstname.lastname@example.org
... some of these are completed and some are ongoing...
