Art of Ben Walker
am a UK based photographer, and have been actively taking photographs for
over ten years. I was introduced to the joys of nude photography by my
older brother; I used to sneak a look at his book collection when I was
a kid. The thrill seems to carry through to the present, as I still get
the same buzz from looking through my latest work.
had many small Web sites show my work, but the best collection of my work
can be found at Michelle7,
a fine art erotic photography site and showcase of artists. Michelle7
were very supportive of my early work. Jack Gilbert, the Artist Representative
for them, actually sought after me. I must admit, I was surprised.
spent many long hours in the dark room trying to come up with a style of
my own. For a long time I believed it to be impossible. I would fret about
it so much I nearly made myself ill, not to mention the strain it put on
the relationship with my wife, Lynn, who is also my most photographed of
my wife and I have healthy interest in sex. I think most couples play in
front of a camera at some point in their relationship, so it seemed natural
and fulfilling to explore new ideas with each other. Then, like most things,
it developed into something of a hybrid of Love, Sex and Art. I strongly
feel that all those aspects come through in the work.
time has progressed I have delved into different avenues, some involving
quite 'hard' images. It has taken a huge amount of time to be accepted
at an artistic level. Now a lot of publishers, and for the most part the
Net, is branching out into new territory, so it is becoming easier for
creative photographers to get their work seen.
I discovered digital photography and the digital darkroom. I now produce
80% of my work this way, although digital still has a long way to go. So
I always have my trusty 35 mm just in case."
