Mike Stacey – ‘Portraiture – Beyond the Nude’
Mike Stacey has been a photographic artist for more than 30 years, using his photography to express the beauty he sees and feels around him. Initially landscapes were his principal focus, with occasional ventures into portraiture, however for the past few years he has been almost exclusively shooting women, seeing an almost transcendent beauty in them.
Mike describes himself as “intuitive, passionate and driven”, and his style as “very honest, sometimes revealing and without too much embellishment”. He likes to keep his images simple, relying on light and composition to achieve something beyond the usual. His hope is that the viewer will stop and look for a couple of extra seconds, empathising with the feelings and ideas behind an image. Sometimes he deliberately creates images that are in the viewer’s face, to provoke that initial moment of pause.
Mike shoots both film and digital. He has gallery representation in Sydney, and images in numerous fashion and art-nude publications.
Mike will present some of his recent work to us. Visit his website: http://www.mikestacey.com/
