Over the past decade, Jock Sturges has produced an incomparable body of work that revels in the beauty of the human form and celebrates the naturist spirit. Jock Sturges: Notes gives fans of his unforgettable images a glimpse behind the scenes of his working process, opening up his studio and notes to the viewer for the very first time. In this volume, he discusses his interactions with the families and individuals for whom he has acted as community portraitist for over a decade, and presents his preliminary "sketches," in the form of Polaroid and other small-format camera studies that he makes before following through with a finished image, ultimately taken with an 8-by-10-inch view camera. A selection of these preparatory studies accompanies several of the finished works included here, offering visual testimony to the complex process and inspiration that underlies each of the gorgeous images his audience has come to love for their remarkable clarity of vision. Jock Sturges: Notes offers unique insight into a renowned artist's creative process.
Jock Sturges received a BA in Perceptual Psychology and Photography from Marlboro College, and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. His published collections include The Last Day of Summer (Aperture, 1991), Radiant Identities (Aperture, 1994), Jock Sturges (1996), and Jock Sturges: New Work, 1997-2000 (2000).
