Ross Spirou is a photographer from Melbourne, Australia.
Since his photography of nature - birds, flowers, natural elements - is as powerful as his male nudes and seems to resonate with them, we have decided to publish this curated collection that tries to bypass narrow definitions of 'genre' and 'subject'. We feel no boundaries in Ross' work: just a sense of unity. Within the limitations of a site, it's therefore as a unity that we have chosen to present his images.
Ross in his own words:
It is interesting to go back a few years and to think about my photography, my nature photography which is what has led me to where I am today. I have always been in love with nature and have always admired the human body, it's form, it's shape and how it relates to everything I surround myself with. I started photographing people -- particularly men, for there are not enough photographers prepared to photograph the naked male form. Being honest, I really don't know why.
Being a nature photographer, a lot of my photography takes place outdoors - whether it's an abandoned property, a lake, creek, natural settings such as giant rocks and rocks, boulders etc.
My aim as a photographer and as an artist is to capture and show the beauty of man and the beauty of the male form. Even though at times my photography may fall into the category of sexy and eye candy, what I love doing is using the male form/torso to create art.
The human body is not something to be ashamed of and instead it should be celebrated!
