Bollywood Dancer

Digital Photography


Collette Fournier

As a native New Yorker, it became a hobby to watch people. My father was a portrait artist and that is how I, as a photographer, came to love studying faces. I appreciate life’s diversity and it was important to include a portrait of an East Indian Bollywood woman and a nude of a family member who had surgery on her beautiful torso. The nude was quite challenging as I was often asked by my mostly male photo collective why women photographers don’t photograph nudes? It was time to challenge that thought and produce through my visual process.
