I’ve been following the work of Jan Saudek (note: many graphic nude images on the site — NOT for the timid) for about 15 years and he is a Master photographer. What originally drew me to his work is his storytelling, his non-conventional models and backgrounds, his themes and the handcolouring. Jan has a very notable ‘style’ and you will love him or hate him.
Today’s image of the day is Hungry For Your Touch, 1971 by Jan Saudek. I love the angle of this image and the positions of the hands which are reminiscent of‚ the Creation of Adam painting. I love the bright light entering the doorway in the background as it makes the theme of the image far richer. Without the door the image is more about hands and intimacy. WITH the door though, all kinds of additional themes (at least to me) are suggested. These themes include, creation, spirituality, union, longing and birth. That’s my take on it anyway, what do YOU see?
