Black & White natural: Westerhuis shows the naked body in all its simplicity, diversity and complexity, He is showing us the beauty of a human beeing in its purest form.
Richard Westerhuis is an independent creative photographer with a love for pure and timeless (portrait) photography. What is beauty? Nowadays, the world seems to be obsessed by being perfect and will even prefer artificiality instead of someone’s natural appearance. Westerhuis on the contrary photographs his models without judgment and encourages his models to be authentic. He believes there’s a beauty in being vulnerable and being yourself. His aim is to portray people the way they are; as real people, without pretending and each with their own story to tell.
