Naked in Colorado: New book shows models as works of art in the Centennial State
Scene and herd: "Most women would rather be photographed as works of art than pinups," says Sherry Whitney, explaining the origins of BodyPhotage, the company she started with husband Darrell Pierson eighteen years ago. And what works of art: For Colorado Uncovered, the new book of Pierson's photographs, models stripped down everywhere from the Colorado Convention Center (by what will henceforth be known as the Big Blue Bare) to Mesa Verde National Park.
There are also photos taken in, around or on top of a shocking variety of other Colorado parks and landmarks, including the Capitol Building, Denver's Millennium Bridge, Red Rocks, the New Belgium brewery and Breckenridge Ski Resort's Peak 9.
Find a sampling of the photos that will be unveiled at a private November 30 book signing at this slide show: "Colorado Uncovered (NSFW)."
