Walter Chappel - Body images

A small hommage to Walter Chappel,  a famous American photographer (1925 - 2000), with a selection of pictures he took of the human body. Of course, it was to be expected that he wouldn't be mainstream in his way to approach human skin and flesh that are more vegetal than animal in a way. The last image is a portrait of him at the end of his life. There's a real sense of freedom and nature-linked philosophy in his work, although he is known for very sophisticated and scientific way of photographic technology (see more details on a site about him here). Now that the times of the fatal entropy of humanity has come, it's with a kind of nostalgy we look at such an artist.
