“GRID-Fragmentation-Lenoir_R 01-05-23–1034”  Cell Phone Camera Photography by Dan McCormack.This is a new cell phone camera image that was divided nine times and reassembled in a 3×3 Grid. I find this image very sensual with her blond hair coming down her torso and her fingers holding the ends of her hair.

Dan McCormack’s approach to nude photography is unique and sets him apart from other photographers. His work doesn’t strive to be sexual but instead seeks to capture the beauty and sensuality of the human condition. McCormack sees nudity as a symbol of vulnerability and authenticity, making it an essential aspect of his artistic expression.

Although the human body is a prominent theme in McCormack’s photography, it’s not the only aspect that sets his work apart. He frequently incorporates natural settings and distinct lighting to establish a particular mood and atmosphere that reflects the subject’s emotional and psychological condition. Ultimately, his photography conveys messages about the subject, their experiences, and their surroundings.

McCormack emphasizes the importance of the relationship between the photographer and the subject in his approach to photography. He believes successful photoshoots require trust, respect, and communication between the two parties, making it a collaboration. McCormack does not create objectifying or exploitative images and always aims to provide his models with a safe and respectful environment.

McCormack’s approach to nude photography is thoughtful, intentional, and sensitive. He sees the human body as a work of art and uses it to create images that capture the essence of the human experience.

Over the years, McCormack has experimented with various cameras, from the Nimslo to the Pinhole Camera and the Cell Phone Camera. He has also dabbled in alternative processes like Cyanotype and Palladium, creating truly unique works. McCormack’s work celebrates the beauty of the human form and its many possibilities in the hands of a talented photographer.

McCormack’s interest in time is also a significant factor in his work. He likes to explore sequences and create series that explore the evolution of a subject over time. McCormack’s work is not merely a documentation of the NUDE but rather a reflection on the human experience, our relationships, and the world we inhabit.

Dan McCormack is a master of capturing the sensual nude in his photography. What separates his work from the stereotypical erotic imagery of nudity is the focus on the subject’s form and natural beauty rather than emphasizing sexuality.

McCormack’s portraits are stunning and emotionally evocative, yet never explicit. Through his sensual artwork, he captures the beauty of the human body without objectifying it. His ultimate aim is to elicit an emotional response from the viewer rather than simply arousing them.

In McCormack’s art, nudity is not simply a tool for arousal but a way of exploring the human condition. His photographs capture his subjects’ vulnerable, unguarded moments, revealing their personalities, thoughts, and emotions.

McCormack has a preferred method when taking photos, which is to use natural light. This technique gives his photos a more intimate and warm feel. He tends to capture his subjects in natural surroundings, highlighting their relationship with nature. This genuine approach is a vital aspect of his artwork and distinguishes it from other erotic photography.

“Diptych Cole-S-04-22-23 _ 4” Office Scanner Photography by Dan McCormack. This one of the first images from a new project that I made on an office scanner. It is two diptychs of a model posing nude on a scanner.

Dan McCormack’s photography goes beyond capturing a beautiful human body image. It is not purely documentary but strives to narrate a tale about our contemporary society. The objective is to capture the model’s physical appearance and convey their essence and the story of their lives or the environment they exist in.

Rather than posing naked in an obscene or overly provocative manner, McCormack’s art emphasizes the beauty and complexity of human relationships. His photographs explore the connection between the body and the soul, aiming to provoke an emotional response from viewers.

His work is personal and reflects his own experiences and emotions. He has developed a unique approach that combines artistry and authenticity. The images he takes are not posed or contrived but rather spontaneous and natural.

Through his photography, Dan McCormack respectfully portrays the model’s humanity, capturing intimate moments and their connection to the world. His work celebrates both the human form and the inherent beauty of all of us.
