Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis


Posted in art, black and white, model, photography, Uncategorized by Jason Gray on June 1, 2014


I’ve decided to take a bit of a break from the more rigid structure of my art-making, and focus for a while on a classic motif, the human figure. Among subjects for artists, there is almost nothing more answerable to the timeless question of form or content than the body. For in the nude human form, we see both an object with wonderfully innate aesthetic qualities and a condition that we all closely identify with. Certainly, this is a Modernist direction that moves away from what I typically do, but it is surprisingly comfortable territory, and something that I have always been fascinated by.

In this group of images, Alexandra was an excellent collaborator that I hope to work with again soon. Alex has an amazing profile, bright eyes, and totally put up with my requests to have the human body positioned in ways that are physically impossible. Thanks again, Alex!
