Female Figure Studies & Form Photography
The female figure has always been a source of fascination for artists. Painters, sculptors, and of course photographers have worked to explore the woman’s form since antiquity. The politics of the body represent different ideas for a variety of artists – it could be an exploration of pure form, the discovery of eros, or a free ranging metaphor for a living organism. For some photographers, the approach to the female form is natural and innocent, and for others it is a challenge of breaking out of taboos and stereotypes.
