Most professional photographers,” says John Rawlings, “have one field which is considered their ‘specialty’ (my own happens to be fashion photography). However, working with the nude offers an escape from the rut of specialization.” And again: “In a nude photograph, the ‘props’ are secondary. Interest doesn’t depend on clothes or background, but on body and facial expression.

Because of these rigid limitations, the subject offers the photographer a wonderful chance to come to grips with the essentials of his craft.” Rawlings, his contemporaries say, has come to grips with the essentials of his craft in masterful fashion. No one, certainly not Rawlings himself, could have foreseen, when he left college to make a living, that his ultimate destination would be fashion and figure photography.
