Young Masters #02: Zoe Wiseman

Zoe lives in Malibu (CA), she loves cats a lot and she’s a member of the ASPCA. Her husband, Charlie Clouser, is a two-time Grammy nominated musician/composer and a member of Nine Inch Nails. Her pics show nudity in a dramatic, natural, and easy way.

Zoe Wiseman was born on 1970 in Marion (IN). She started getting involved in photography when she was 4, as a model. She became an active photographer in 2001, when she started to practice all the things she learned from the great photographers she worked with. If you look at some of her shots, it’s clear that she focuses on the model as only a model can do: her passion is portraiture, particularly nude portraiture.

Her nude subjects seem to fuse with the landscape, which is not random: landscape surfaces are a part of the project behind every single pic. Sometimes this relationship between the subject and landscapes is used to express some “touch” feelings: rough landscape with a nude and soft skin, as in the classic Greek sculpture.
Zoe has been published in a lot of magazines, newspapers, and books as both a model and photographer; sometimes both as a model and as a photographer in the same publication!

Zoe seems not to like so much color films, because she’s used to focus on black-and-white or sepia-shades photography. Monochrome shades are prefect on nude bodies; film makes the difference because it gives warmer effects in contrast between dark and light shades.

Zoe started many cool web art-based projects, like iPhoneArtography, in which she publishes all the pictures she took with Instagram, some short videos through her Vimeo channel and Communityzoe.com which is a site made for promoting the art of photographers from all over the world since 1998.

She has been nominated twice for the Grammys, because she’s also a composer for movies (SAW I-VII) and TV (NUM3ERS).

Alessandro Panelli (aka yo.panic or .panic) is a Medicine and Surgery student, a photographer and a writer from Padova (Italy, near Venice). Read more about Alessandro’s work and life here or add him on Facebook or Google+.

    I love your color nudes however, the pictures in black and white are more artistic. Have you tired EIR?
