Publisher's Description  
  
Blacklock's artful Lake Superior nudes bring a classic genre into the digital age...the work picks up where Edward Weston left off. — Russell Hart, Executive Editor, American Photo magazine Please see the full story on A Voice Within in the September/October issue of American Photo magazine. Having established himself as a preeminent portrayer of unpeopled landscapes, Craig Blacklock in his most recent project utilizes both human form and voice to add new layers to his lifelong consideration of nature. A Voice Within features Craig’s wife Honey as both voice and vision, model and mediator. Her bodily positions and hand gestures offer the vicarious sensations of flesh against sun-warmed stone, rough driftwood, and storm-tossed ice along Lake Superior’s shores. Her words open up the experience even further. Her first-person writings provide dimensions of realism and insight, and bring color to Craig’s photographs, which in this project reduce his multi-hued palette to a classic single tone. Honey also fills the role of surrogate for Craig, who has never occupied his work quite as eloquently or revealingly as in this project; as an artist and a husband, his photographs serve as both appreciations of form and testaments of love. Crafted by partners in a long-term, intimate alliance, Honey and Craig Blacklock’s A Voice Within follows the photographic lineage of O’Keeffe and Stieglitz, Wilson and Weston, Edith and Emmet Gowin, and Bebe and Nicholas Nixon. —George Slade Artistic Director, Minnesota Center for Photography
