The exhibit and party celebrate a collection of nude studies taken over seventeen years.
From his website: "The story of the artist and his muse is a long tradition in the arts. Some of Ben’s photography heroes such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston and Harry Callahan were all inspired to photograph their wives. Ben’s images of Trudie carry on the tradition of that lineage. They tell the story of their artist/muse relationship."
See Ben Larrabee's blog post on the collaborative nature of the artist/muse relationship "Receiving the Gifts of the Muse, Nantucket".
