"Bodyscape" Look

Figurative Forms & Curves with Dan Hostettler

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)


Dan Hostettler is here with a new part of his "nude looks" series. This time it's all about bodyscapes.

Bodyscapes depict high-contrast artistic style nudes where close-up framing of the human form conveys the impression of landscapes. More broadly defined one might say it’s about the lines, curves and forms of the subject.

In order to support the rather abstract captured forms, a contrasting lighting is necessary to blank out excessive visual information.

Bodyscapes are following the classical nude approach and focus on the human form as a study, from abstract to compositional. No sexualized and teasing poses are involved so the results are typically faceless.
