Greeting the day in an abandoned sanatorium.

Please note that if this sort of art is not to your taste, you may very easily uncircle me or hide the post.  Please be an adult here; this certainly conforms to the G+ policy on artistic nudity, but it's disheartening how many times I've had to deal with immature children flagging posts on here.  I hope, however, that this is not an issue and you enjoy my photograph!

For those that may be interested, I've recently released three new limited editions of some of my favorite staircase shots (larger at http://bit.ly/1oUGtwQ).  The editions of 10 are giant - 24x36" - signed and numbered on verso.  But the first impression in each - the (1/10) - is available on auction for cheap at eBay!  The link is here: http://bit.ly/1oUGtwQ - so if you're looking for some new art for your walls, this might be your chance!  And if not, but you'd like to help out - share this post so that more people have an opportunity to get in on the action.  :)

+Danny G - The morgue is a basically a standalone building, the Pathology Lab.  The padded rooms are in the Cheney building, the giant tower you can see from the road.

Serenity in the Ruins

Another from my most recent roadtrip with Ms Meggo; in order to get this shot, I had to traverse much of the building to get to the other side of the collapse while she got ready to kick up the dust for the "smoke" effect and then quickly hit her pose...

On the road again!

I'm about to jump back on the road for a week with Ms Meggo, to create more awesome art in abandoned buildings!  So excuse my absence, but when I come back... tons more like this to be seen!  Have a great week all!

25,000!

Well, my dear friends and followers, I just noticed that today I ticked up past 25,000 followers!  I'm thrilled and honored that my work is noticed and appreciated by all of you.  As long as you keep watching, I'll keep posting - and in that vein, here's one more of Ms Meggo from this past weekend before I head out on another road trip tomorrow!

My account was just suspended for "pornography".

This is important, people.  For the last couple of days, my Google Plus account was suspended for "pornography", even though I have never posted a pornographic image in my life.  I post fine art nudes.  I am going to continue posting fine art nudes.  I am not going to stop posting fine art nudes.  So if you don't like fine art nudes, please unfollow me now.

I am saddened that some people who chose to follow me decided to flag my photography.  I am saddened even more by the fact that Google Plus temporarily suspended my account because they were unable to tell the difference.  I have been a member of this community for about three years, and have been posting nudes the entire time.  In fact, it was my "polemical argument about sexism" that went viral and led to a wider acceptance of nude art on Google Plus.

Simply put, I'm not going to stop.  But kindly grow up.  If you don't like my art, just unfollow me.  It's that easy.  And to those of you who've supported me over the years: thanks!  Although it's been sad to see the falloff in activity over here, I have much love for all of you.

Restless Sleep

Okay, a second post today, just because Mr. +Ricardo Williams is clearly waiting by his computer for one to come down the stream.  ;)

Ms Meggo - the model in this photograph - is a total badass.  If that pose looks easy (or painless) in any way, go find a hospital bed and try it - seems like all that yoga has paid off!

I swung out for a while...

So I haven't made any new posts in over a month.  You may be asking "well why is that, Ian?"   I've basically spent two months on the road, shooting - making new photos like this one.  Expect to see many more in the coming days!

Greeting the morning.

I just got back from two weeks on the road with the incomparably beautiful and talented Ms Meggo, during which we took on several abandoned hotels, a few asylums, and a center for delinquent youth.  Here's the first of many shots from an amazing adventure!

Good friends, good staircase, good moon!

So I just returned from a roadtrip with comrade-in-arms +Amy Heiden and new friend +Todd Sipes; we rocked 4 locations over 3 days.  One of them was another trip to Hudson River State Hospital - the location I was initially least excited about, having been there dozens of times over the years.  But when it came time to shoot Blue Hour, I knew right where I wanted to be - on the grand curved stairwell in the Administrative section of the Kirkbride asylum.  When I finally got into position in this corner, civil twilight was already waning, and by the time I got the shot composed, almost over - but I noticed something.  The waxing gibbous moon, almost full, was shining in and hitting the wall to the left.  Lacking time to meter the situation, I just guessed - ISO 200, f/9, 15 minutes on Bulb.  And then, right at the end of the exposure, two people - possibly scrappers - walked right past the door on the landing beneath this one!  I quickly packed up, leaving Long Exposure Noise Reduction running, and we booked it out of there.  It wasn't until I got back to the car that I saw what I'd gotten - and all of a sudden, was very, very glad we'd gone to Hudson that evening!
