Three Sydney photo-artists, Chris Meredith, Len Metcalf and Edmond Thommen invite you to view “3+1” - an exhibition of images from an art-nude photoshoot with three photographers and one model.

The shoot took place on a sunny Monday morning in December 2015 near Cronulla with an internationally acclaimed fine-art model. The three took turns to direct the model and create their work - sometimes calling on each-other to assist or advise on a particular set-up. Whilst the three had never worked together in this way before, they all knew each-other and had worked individually with the model, so there was a relaxed and supportive atmosphere throughout.

Photographers normally prefer to work alone but chose to collaborate on this occasion so that they could encourage and push each-other creatively both on the shoot itself and during the post production process.

The exhibition reveals that the three photographers represent their subject in vastly different ways. The images cover the full spectrum of styles from monochrome fine-art through to contemporary almost abstract interpretations of the female form.

The artists hope that visitors will enjoy not only the images and the spectrum of creative styles but also challenge themselves to consider how they choose to portray their subject when they take a photograph.
