A few words from MICHAEL HUHN, artist, voyeur & photographer
ARTIST AND VOYEUR
“The urban landscape presents itself as a natural backdrop for my subjects.
Models, light mood, design and textures interact to create my own style.
Through my photography I reach out in the same way that my models are gesturing for a place for themselves in the environment.
Our vulnerability is expressed in our thoughts and gestures. We are but flesh and emotion - our minds are trapped within.
The male form has been idolized since the early Greeks and has recently been a Renaissance experience. The recognition and acceptance of the male nude is vitally important to our conservative society.
My intention is to help people better understand and appreciate the relationship between the human psyche and the human form.
Photography is the medium I have chosen to express my own inner sensibilities.
I can create my own reality because the camera arrests the moment and mood. As a photographer, I'm a voyeur and an artist. I often take the human form out of its natural environment and place it in surroundings, where it is not normally found. With each, I set the human spirit free.”
