I am Darren Phillips and I am an artist working in the medium of photography and, more specifically, in the discipline of fine-art nude photography in the landscape.
The world of nudie magazines and editorial glamour for the men’s market is of no appeal. It is the play of light, the contrast of form, the primal honesty of the nude as a part of the world that inspires me and directs my course.
Although based in Adelaide, I do travel in my work and so the opportunity to engage with the art and craft of my photography is forever motivated by new places, new experiences and new people to create with.
Development as an artist is a slow and meticulous course to explore and in time it would be my hope that I could exhibit my work in galleries, catalogues and monographs.
The success of my work rests just not on my own abilities and thoughts but also on the unique and varying input each and every model brings to the shoot with them. Every image is a collaboration between my vision and my model’s understanding and response to that vision.
To those who have joined me on my journey I am deeply thankful and respectful and to those with whom I am yet to work all I ask is that you look at my work, understand my objectives and become a part of this exciting visual adventure.
