(Go to to see the 112 pages in "The Box.")

"The Box" is a concept long anticipated. In the years since I first encountered Ruth Bernhard's famous "nude in a box" photos, I have wanted to pursue that theme, in my own interpretation and brought current with techniques and materials. I accomplished my goal during seven photo sessions in 2008-09.

"The Box" reproduces over 150 of the very best photos from an online collection of over 300 -- a veritable photographic feast of "constrained beauty."

The models:

Abigail - Tall, statuesque, and a real pro

Anne - New to the game but eager to excel;

Brooke - One of the most sought-after models in the U.S. today;

Gianni - Young and energetic -- a genuine natural;

Kenzie - For her a passion, she poses with abandon;

Meg - With whom I've worked the longest and most often, with great pleasure;

Pistol - Tall and lean, with tattoos befitting her name; and

Victoria - Of Russian heritage, her only nudes she did with me.

Each unique and all wonderful, eight gals graced The Box, inside and on top, in this memorable photo collection.

About the Author

Stephen Haynes
magicflute Minneapolis, MN
Stephen Haynes is a fine art photographer living in Minneapolis, MN. His principal subject is the fine art nude, and he has also done notable work in travel scenes and the performing arts. About his art he says: “I am largely self-taught. Even without much formal training, I try to produce photos and prints of high aesthetic quality, to exacting technical standards. With the female nude, I always seek new settings, lighting and poses in which to present the human form. In travel, I hope to photograph either from special vantage points or at a unique moment in time. Form and structure often triumph over grand vistas or photos that will appeal to an ‘art show’-type clientele."
