Contrasting the human (male and female) nude against the textures of rock, grass, sand, wood and water, the black-and-white photographs of American fashion and portrait photographer Cliff Watts envisage bodies as "human fossils." Watts describes this volume as "a collaboration between myself and six willing friends who volunteered to go through extreme heat, freezing cold and various uncomfortable conditions."
Cliff Watts is an American fashion and portrait photographer and commercials director. He is most widely known for his ad campaigns for Revlon, L'Oreal, Hugo Boss, Banana Republic and Armani Jeans, as well as for his work in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Bazaar, W, Elle and Esquire. His music videos for Beyonce complement his spot projects, which have paired him with celebrity subjects such as David Beck-ham, Halle Berry, Sienna Miller and Scarlett Johansson. Watts' work is noted for its unique perspective, as evident in his intimate portraits that reveal the sensuality, humour and humanity that lies behind the public image of his subjects. Wood Water & Rock will be his first tabletop book.
