New York City based and Denmark born photographer, Torkil Gudnason, came to the United States in 1978 and immediately began working with and assisting photographers in the world of fashion. Upon working in the commercial world of photography, Gudnason began to apply the same techniques and production value to his fine art work. Gudnason’s most recent works explore the contemporary natural world through the use of color and abstraction of the nude human form. In contrast to the long dark winters that Gudnason experienced as a child in Denmark, it is only natural that he is attracted to the vibrant and eclectic contrasts that he depicts in his photographs. Gudnason shows his works extensively in the United States and around the world.
