Gerhardt Thompson is one of those rare artists who is able to unify multiple elements into a single, cohesive vision that is often far more spectacular than the sum of its parts. He specializes in photographing the human figure, specifically the female nude, and his penchant for mixing the graceful qualities of his human subjects with the natural landscapes of the Australian bush and beach are absolutely spellbinding. His alchemy of sunlight and shadow, flesh, sand, mortar, and stone, and the rush of the waves, are all ingredients to a magnificent vision. Gerhardt admits to admiring many photographers, Edward Weston being one of them, whose work is crafted around a harmony of form where the human body, although indispensable in the overall scheme of things, is not necessarily the main focus of the picture but is instead only of its key ingredients. The same sense of design runs through his veins as well. And it is a lovely and refreshing perspective.
Gerhardt Thompson, fine art nude photographer, earned an MD in Optics in 1980 at Sydney University, Australia and later earned his MBA through Harvard Business School, USA.
