A Critic's Opinion E-mail

"I do a lot of nudes for which I use photos taken off the internet (you can see a couple of them here - http://www.tadrichards.com/artslide.html), and I use bad snapshots, generally those sites where guys post nude pictures of their wives, because I'm not working through someone else's artistic vision, and if you look through a hundred or so of them, you'll maybe find one that has an accidental glimpse of humanity that you can work with. And I look at serious or would-be serious photographers' nudes as well, and they're very rarely interesting. But yours capture both the beauty and the humanity of your subjects -- they're sexy and they're warm."

Tad Richards (artist).
