I am an Indigenous man, photographer, visual artist in NYC. I love creating artistic nude photographs and mixed media artworks (nude photographs and acrylic paintings). I have been doing this since 2000. I have have the opportunity to create nude photographs with some amazing models. I am very grateful with all of them. I also cover rallies, marches, festivals, parades, etc. I love photography, and art in general.
This site is dedicated to my photography and painting works about the male and female bodies (I will also share works from other artists and models). While it is considered by me as a work of art, if you are offended by the human body, I invite you to leave this site now. All my models are over the age of 18.

A little history about nude photography.
“Fine art nude photography is a genre of fine-art photography which depicts the nude human body with an emphasis on form, composition, emotional content, and other aesthetic qualities. The nude has been a prominent subject of photography since its invention, and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. The distinction between fine art photography and other subgenres is not absolute, but there are certain defining characteristics. Erotic interest, although often present, is secondary, which distinguishes art photography from both glamour photography, which focuses on showing the subject of the photograph in the most attractive way, and pornographic photography, which has the primary purpose of sexually arousing the viewer. Fine art photographs are also not taken to serve any journalistic, scientific, or other practical purpose. The distinction between these is not always clear, and photographers, as with other artists, tend to make their own case in characterizing their work, though the viewer may have a different assessment.
The nude remains a controversial subject in all media, but more so with photography due to its inherent realism. The male nude has been less common than the female, and more rarely exhibited or published. The use of children as subjects in nude photography is especially controversial.
Those early photographers in Western cultures who sought to establish photography as a fine art medium, frequently chose women as the subjects for their nude photographs, in poses that accorded with traditional nudes in other media. Before nude photography, art nudes usually used allusions to classical antiquity; gods and warriors, goddesses and nymphs. Depictions of male and female nudes in traditional art mediums had been mostly limited to portrayals as an ideal warrior or athlete (for men) or that emphasized divinity and reproduction (for women), and early photographic art first engaged these archetypes as well. Poses, lighting, soft focus, vignetting and hand retouching were employed to create photographic images that rose to the level of art comparable to the other arts at that time. The main limitation was that early photographs were monochrome. Although 19th century artists in other media often used photographs as substitutes for live models, the best of these photographs were also intended as works of art in their own right.
Nude photography was more controversial than painted nude works, and in order to avoid censorship some early nude photographs were described as “studies for artists”, while others were used as references by artists to do drawings and paintings as a supplement to live models. Eugène Delacroix was an early adopter of the practice of using photographs taken specifically for him by his friend, Eugène Durieu. Edgar Degas made his own photographs that he used for painting references.
Glamour and fashion photography
Glamour and fashion photographers have aspired to fine art status in some of their work. One of the first was Irving Penn, who progressed from Vogue magazine to photographing fashion models such as Kate Moss nude. Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and Annie Leibovitz have followed a similar path with portraits of the famous, many of them nude. or partially clothed. In the post-modern era, where fame is often the subject of fine art, Avedon’s photo of Nastassja Kinski with a python, and Leibovitz’s magazine covers of Demi Moore pregnant and in body paint, have become iconic. The work of Joyce Tenneson has gone the other way, from fine art with a unique, soft-focus style showing woman at all stages of life to portraiture of famous people and fashion photography.
Although nude photographers have largely worked within established forms that show bodies as sculptural abstractions, some, such as Robert Mapplethorpe, have created works that deliberately blur the boundaries between erotica and art.
Many contemporary artists push the boundaries by having work with both aesthetic qualities and explicit sexuality. Late in his life Robert Mapplethorpe (November 4, 1946 – March 9, 1989) created work that was controversial in part by being on display in Washington, DC in a gallery receiving public funds. When a Robert Mapplethorpe retrospective opened at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center in 1990, Dennis Barrie became the first American museum director to be criminally prosecuted for the contents of an exhibition. Although explicit photos were placed in a separate room with a content warning, Barrie was charged with “pandering obscenity” and showing minors in a state of nudity, a jury acquitted Barrie and the Arts Center of all charges.”_Wikipedia.org
Un poco de historia sobre la fotografía de desnudos.
“La fotografía de desnudos de bellas artes es un género de fotografía de bellas artes que representa el cuerpo humano desnudo con énfasis en la forma, la composición, el contenido emocional y otras cualidades estéticas. El desnudo ha sido un tema destacado de la fotografía desde su invención, y jugó un papel importante en el establecimiento de la fotografía como un medio de bellas artes. La distinción entre la fotografía de bellas artes y otros subgéneros no es absoluta, pero hay ciertas características definitorias. El interés erótico, aunque a menudo presente, es secundario, lo que distingue a la fotografía artística de la fotografía de glamour, que se centra en mostrar el sujeto de la fotografía de la manera más atractiva, y la fotografía pornográfica, que tiene el objetivo principal de excitar sexualmente al espectador. Las fotografías de bellas artes tampoco se toman para fines periodísticos, científicos u otros fines prácticos. La distinción entre estos no siempre es clara, y los fotógrafos, al igual que otros artistas, tienden a hacer su propio caso al caracterizar su trabajo, aunque el espectador puede tener una evaluación diferente.
El desnudo sigue siendo un tema controvertido en todos los medios, pero más aún con la fotografía debido a su realismo inherente. El desnudo masculino ha sido menos común que el de la mujer, y más rara vez exhibido o publicado. El uso de niñas y niños como sujetos en la fotografía de desnudos es especialmente controvertida.”_Wikipedia.org
“The nude has historically been one of the central subjects of art, but it remains a subject of controversy and censorship in the United States. The beauty of the human body has inspired painters, photographers, sculptors and choreographers for many centuries. For hundreds of years there have been sculptures of nudes in many public spaces from Washington, D.C. to the capitals of Europe. The U.S. Supreme Court has stated multiple times that simple nudity (i.e., representations of the nude body in a non-sexualized manner) is constitutionally protected expression.”_National Coalition Against Censorship.
“Women have been legally allowed to go topless in public in New York City since 1992. So if you’re in Central Park or on the High Line or at one of the best beaches in New York, you have every right to take off that godforsaken bra and let your boobs feel the sun’s sweet rays (but don’t forget the sunscreen).”_TimeOut.com
