Assignment 1 – 151mc – Joan Semmel Nudes


Although not a photographer I was very interested to find the work of the painter Joan Semmel.  In her series With Camera , 2001-2006, she painted self portraits of herself taking photographs of her naked body.

I find these images to be uncompromising and feminine. Showing the female body as it is, without alteration. She has an almost Renaissance feel to her work
