About

Contemporary sepia toned photograph, portrait of a young man Sepia toned silver gelatin print, edition of 25 16 x 16 inches in wood frame with wire backing This contemporary portrait photograph was taken by David Halliday in 2004. The sepia toned silver gelatin print beautifully captures a young male model on a simple monotone background. The composition highlights the man's bust. Flawless nude skin complements the sepia toned backdrop, while contrasts in light and shadow accentuate his chest and shoulder muscles. The man's casual gaze lends a serene atmosphere to the image. This print, included in an edition of 25, is protected in a wood frame with wire backing. The photograph is ready to hang as is. About the Artist: David Halliday's photographs are about beauty, pure and simple. His primary subjects are carefully composed still lifes, portraits and landscapes which he shoots in black and white film with only natural light. He is a purist behind the lens, rarely manipulating his negatives in any way, and a master in the darkroom. His work has an ethereal quality that's translated not only through the subject, but also by the warm colors and sepia tones he uses in his printing. More about the work: A master of light, David Halliday produces lush and elegant images that are both classical and modern. Celebrated for his ‘purist’ eye, he poetically captures the nude male body in a selection of sepia-toned prints from 1996. Rarely revealing the model's face, Halliday prefers to focus on the natural drape of limbs, soft folds of flawless skin, and curvature of the spine. Overall, a stunningly intimate portrayal of the male form done with elegance and charm.
