This has been a long term project of mine, ranging over 30 years Caribbean studio nudes, of young beautiful girls, their colours ranging from black to butternut. The models were not professional and most had jobs, some worked part time in local modelling shows. West Indian woman are very proud of their bodies, and it was a privilege to work with them.
My thinking was to show young black girls in a more positive vain, starting with film in the 80's, and moving through to digital. All this work was done during time off, from my pay check work, shooting yachts, villas and resorts.
the early years were mainly black and white, and a small dark room allowed me to experiment, with the lighting, and then working in New York in the summer months with mainstream photographers, , I was hit by the digital revolution,!!! and everything changed, On hindsite, I still like to keep my digital work with a little feeling of film.
