Martha Casanave


My portrayals of the nude depart somewhat from the usual, in that they depict women as dynamic and functional rather than as passive and decorative. My photographs of both male and female nudes include bodies of different sizes, shapes, and ages. For my thoughts on the nude in photography, see my “Forward” in Naked Women (2001, Thunder’s Mouth Press), edited by Phil Braham, and additional text.
