York photographer Jonathan Mitchell has been photographing the nude for
over twenty years and is mostly self-taught. His work has appeared in what
he describes as "minor exhibitions and publications". Part of
his inspiration for shooting nudes, he says, is the simple fact that there
are so many women willing to pose nude for him. Each Summer Jonathan
undertakes a new project involving photographing nude women. Since most of
his work is done outdoors, warm weather is a necessity. "New York
City is my studio", he says.
