DELINEATED is a series of images photographically illustrating the beauty of the human form without actually showing the body. It began with a method of dripping lines of paint across the bodies of different models then removing (most of) the models themselves, capturing the inherent motion and unique contour of each body in stunningly graceful compositions. But that’s just the beginning! With your help, we can make this artistic study as phenomenal as possible.
In order to complete this project, I will be doing paint drip photo shoots with additional models of both sexes and various body types. I will also be delineating the human form with a variety of other media and techniques, including water droplets, leaves, sand, reflective particles, ribbon, fabric, tattoos, freckles and more! Some of these compositions will be stark studies in minimalism like the paint drip compositions, while others will include complete settings like Trapped (shown below).
I've already invested hundreds of dollars into this project and completed 10 photo shoots with models of different body types. The initial test shots that I’ve released have been extremely well received by galleries and the art community, and now 30 models have signed on wanting to take part in various stages of the concept. In fact, the majority of the models were even willing to be compensated only with copies of the images that we shoot (TF) if insufficient funds are not raised, and it’s my hope that you are equally as excited to be a part of this project!
The images from these photo shoots alone would already make a beautiful collection, and the minimum funding amount on this Kickstarter will guarantee my ability to compile the completed shots into a book as well as produce the various rewards. (View the project updates to see a few of the additional images that have been shot so far.)
Funds beyond the goal amount will allow me to compensate TF models and/or hire additional models and purchase additional supplies to include as many additional DELINEATED explorations as possible. To encourage this, I have lined up a wide array of Kickstarter exclusive rewards and will add artistic expansions and free reward add-ons if we surpass the minimum funding goal, so please pass the word on about DELINEATED even if you choose not to participate in funding it. Together, we can take this project to exceptional levels!
Rewards - I've included the cost of shipping within the US in all of the reward levels. As you look through the reward options, if you see more than one reward that you would like, including more than one of the same reward, simply add that additional amount to your pledge. If shipping outside of the US, please add an another $10 per additional reward for shipping. I'm afraid that safely shipping framed or canvas prints outside the US is not sufficiently cost effective to be available, though.
Print Upgrades - if you would like to increase the size of art prints in the rewards, simply add the following to your pledge:
- +$10 – Increase the size of an ~8x10 print to ~11x14 (frame not included)
- +$20 – Increase the size of an ~8x10 print to ~16x20 (frame not included)
- +$30 – Increase the size of a framed ~8x10 print to ~11x14 with ~16x20 frame
- +$40 – Increase the size of a framed ~8x10 print to ~16x20 with ~20x24 frame
- +$40 – Increase the size of an ~11x14 canvas print to ~16x20
Risks and challenges
My goal is for the finished images from all of these shoots, including achieved stretch goals, for all reward options except the book, to be completed in time for the holidays. Anyone who purchases a book may opt to receive a card to give in place of the book until it is completed. However, with the large number of models wanting to participate, it is possible that their schedules will not allow us to complete all of their photo shoots. If that happens, you will have the option of selecting from amongst the images that have been completed prior to Christmas or waiting for all images to be completed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
