Keith Haring. Although a largely unknown photographer today, Herron had close ties in the New York art scene as a budding photographer, connections that allowed him access to some of the most important figures of the day, although exactly how he knew some of his subjects remains a mystery. The ones who do remember tell me that they were introduced through another sitter but no one seems to have known the artist very well.
Nude Photography can be quite a divisive subject to discuss in the photography world. There are many that see it as a perfectly legitimate art form that can empower people and question perceptions of beauty.

Nude photography is a genre most photographers dabble in every now and again. I've often thought of nude photography as a natural extension of portraiture; if you're going to spend so much time on trying to capture the 'essence' of who somebody is, in some cases shedding any barriers between the model and the camera such as clothes is the next logical step.
