Dave Rudin, Brooklyn, N.Y. • “Nude, Nevada”
The Photographic Nude is a juried exhibit exploring the artistic and creative view of the body and its form, celebrating the nude in photography by embracing a variety of styles. We welcome the timeless elegance of a classical study as well as alternative and provocative styles. Studies of the whole or partial human form, nude or semi-nude are eligible.
This year we are happy to announce that Michael and Chelsea Granger of LightBox will serve as jurors. Having had great jurors over the first 5 years of this series, the selection process is in the hands of those that conceived of the exhibit. Once again this year, the exhibit will also be published online in Blur Magazine.
“From Edward Weston to Joel-Peter Witkin, the nude as a subject has been approached by photographers throughout history. From the classic simplicity of Weston to the complex, evocative, and morose style of Witkin, capturing the human form remains a timeless yet challenging pursuit among photographers. At its best, it is beautiful, and when not, it’s just a naked body looking out of place. We are honored to be able to put our signature on the exhibit, look forward to the artists’ contributions, hoping for amazing submissions, and we are excited to see direction the exhibit goes.”
