Rewilding Book Reviewed by NY-ARTNews

Have you ever wondered why people feel so deeply and innately connected to nature, and why maintaining contact with our natural world is so important to most people’s health and happiness?

This book explains this very deep-rooted human need both through a short contemporary narrative which takes the reader from America’s Yellowstone National Park to the west coast of Ireland, and through a series of more than 100 colour fine art nude photographs shot in a variety of locations in Europe.

Nudity is important in this story because it strips away any masking of persona or confusion with the connection each person is making with the natural world where they are photographed. The absence of clothing also helps to prevent the images from becoming dated, because the theme of the book is timeless.

The 16 women appearing in the book are aged from 24-43, and while most are professional or semi-professional models, others are ordinary women who agreed to become a part of the project. Originally conceived as a mix of both colour and monochrome images, this book contains only colour images; that is the world and people as our eyes, with their combination of cones and rods, see them. There is a companion volume which contains black and white images – entitled “Rewilding the Human Spirit – Naturally Nude in Nature.”

The book is available in digital format from amazon:-

Siena Awards Nude Category Winner 2020

Amazilia is delighted to have won the Nude Category at the 2020 Siena Creative Photography Awards.

The image features two exceptional fine art nude models, Anna Rose and Ayla, and is part of a wonderful duo art nude shoot. One can be forgiven for thinking that Anna and Ayla must have worked together many times before to produce such creative and well choreographed poses, but I believe this was only their second ever shoot together.

This particular pose was one of several dynamic art nude manoeuvres created in a dazzling fast-paced session. 

I particularly like the contrasts between the tones of the models' skins and the harmony in their body positioning. 

Working with such talented, hard-working models is a real privilege. I only wish I'd had time to appreciate the beauty of their poses, but in truth they both worked so fast that I struggled to keep up...and I was only pressing the shutter button!

A second photograph by Amazilia was also Commended at the same Competition. "Elegant Poise" features the fine art nude model Helen Diaz in a striking pose, which unusually is lit with a softbox from directly above the model. 

The blue tint added in post production gives the image additional emotional context, which is important in my sensual art nude imagery, as I am always looking to engender some emotional reaction when viewers see my work.
