    Thanks for posting the link. I didn't know his work, but it is interesting to see a different, and such honest, approach to nude photography.

    Surely, the people that were offended by his pictures here on APUG, must never have visited any museum in their life? I can't see the issues here. Yes, it's direct, unflattering and above all human, but what's wrong with that??

    His work reminds me of Lucian Freud, he takes the same approach, just with paint.

    Holy cow. A thread with my name on it. :-)

    I don't want the thread to leave people with the
    wrong idea of my decision to keep a lower profile
    here and elsewhere on the web. I found that I was
    spending too much time in web forums, that I should
    have been devoting to photography, writing, and family.

    I've found, here and elsewhere, that my photography
    sometimes provokes angry responses. That's not a bad
    thing, in itself -- it is meant to provoke in some measure.
    Samuel Johnson once wrote that he "would rather be
    attacked than unnoticed. For the worst thing you can do
    to an author is to be silent as to his works." I stopped
    posting my portrait series in online forums not so much
    because of the animosity they sometimes stirred, but
    because the medium disconnects the individual portraits
    from their context as a series. If anyone wants to see
    them, I use flickr as a kind of weblog of what I am
    shooting, and you can find me there at

    http://www.flickr.com/sandersnyc.

    The SHIRT!

    It is from a site devoted to analog photography, that
    ran a short feature on my portrait series:

    http://www.smellsfunny.net

    Click on the "Store" link and you will find all kinds of
    shirts and other stuff for purchase with the site's
    logo on it.

    Thanks, all, for thinking of me.

    Yes, please. The series linked to from the article kept me looking and looking. I can't open them at school, but here at home I love 'em. The variety of beauty always astounds me and you show it so well.

    Well, okay: Because you asked.

    A little off the beaten path for me.

    Brilliant pictures, Sanders. You really should exhibit them somewhere in the real world as well. Maybe you do from time to time?

    I have been a fan of Sander's work since the first time I saw it. I believe it to be a wonderful body of work.

    I also have to agree with Ari's comments.

    Sanders, if ever you do publish a book, I would be quite interested in purchasing a copy.

    Guys, you are all kind. Mick, I am at work
    on a book of the series, accompanied by
    essays on portraiture that I am writing now.
    Every comment I post on web sites like
    APUG, is a paragraph I didn't write for the
    book. Procrastination.

    Melanie beat me up for posting the subway
    photo because it is "trite" and outside the
    goals of my portraiture work. (She is right.)
    To atone, I've posted selections from my
    last two portrait sessions here on APUG:

    I was a Sanders fan before he was Rolleiflexible.
