Nude Man Spouting in the Desert - Gay Interest- Born from Mother Earth

$ 6,500
  • Description
    We are all born from Mother Earth. Mimicking a plant or tree , a muscular man standing on his head emerges upward from the desert ground with is legs spread out like branches. Seen from the back, the man's identity is purposely concealed so that he is more of an archetype than an individual. The only evidence of humanity in this vast primal landscape is the nude man. Shot outside of Taos, New Mexico, the image was photographed in infra-red to merge the unexpectedness of a nude upside-down man with an unexpected pictorial look. The resulting surreal image was taken 50 years ago and retains its artistic power and originality.
    Signed and dated on the lower right recto , numbered 2/15 other size available, unframed, Printed later, Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art paper.
