structured eclecticism

...inspiring me lately

david hamilton

david hamilton -- the british photographer known for his soft focus images of young women.
much like sally mann, his work has been somewhat controversial
for his use of young, often nude females as his subjects.
he captures such a sense of time, beauty, and nostalgia in his work.
