this project I am working with a cell phone camera to create 3 x
3 GRID images of Lenoir nude in the studio and landscape. I

of Chicago. I came back to grids in 1992 when I combined 24
images with the Nimslo Camera, and later a Grid with the Action
Tracker Camera in 1999.
have been photographing the nude for over 50 years, exploring

image that says something, not just a pretty image. I have been

dynamic of these images.
this set of images, I am working with this one model, Lenoir as
