Nude Male Models Outdoors by Sherwin Carlquist


 Last week we told you all about

Sherwin Carlquist and recent book called UNCUT.

I wanted to share with you this week, more images from his BEST OF Collection book MEN IN NATURE.

He has specialized in studies on plant anatomy and island biology (7 books, nearly 300 scientific papers). He had a successful career, especially in teaching and research, as a professor in California.

In his earlier days, he also studied art–particularly composition and design–at the Pasadena Art Institute. His plant anatomy papers and books contain many photographs done with the microscope. When he wrote his book, “HAWAII A NATURAL HISTORY,” he began to realize that in photographing plants and animals, placing them in relation to their native landscapes creates compelling images.

He developed the idea of applying this to human subjects–a man in a landscape, combining the forms of each into a unified picture. The tradition of Western Art has often been to combine the nude male (in sculpture or painting) with a landscape, emphasizing movement and emotion. This tradition has not really been represented in recent photography, which stresses the body and all too often leaves the rest of the space unused or not imaginatively used. Sherwin Carlquist has attempted to counter this lack, and to develop a genre in art photography that really has lain undeveloped. In a sense, he is photographing the human body like a natural history object, with the beauty and sensuality implied in nature photography of plants and animals focused on a human surrounded by great scenery.

Over the years he has published 7 books of male nudes – all with Uncut Men!

The photos featured here are from MEN IN NATURE. A collection of color images spanning 20 years of works. The red-orange colors of sandstones in Utah, the shiny blackness of a Hawaiian lava flow, the sheen of sand dunes, the liveliness of a waterfall in Yosemite-these and other scenes spring to life as the backdrops for intact male bodies representing a rich diversity of types and moods.
