Surface Tension (2015) Session #1 (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
In 1998, I made an image of a model emerging from a tidal pool, breaking through the reflection of the evening sky on the water. That image stuck in my head until I began exploring studio photographs of the Nude emerging from water in 2005. That work in turn lead to a more focused (and successful) group of images made in 2007, created in a larger (6'x8') pool. Now, 17 years after making the first image, I have another opportunity to pursue the elusive muse of the line between water and skin.

The first session of two days of photography was with Jen, who's first worked with me in 2006. Jenn and I have done some outdoor water images before, but this was her first time working with a pool in a studio, and the idea of heated water was a revelation to her.

There's no way these images could have been made without the kindness, encouragement and support of Steve Richard and Shadowhouse Studios.
