Incredible Grace: Cary By Dennis Nauert

Grace: Simple elegance or refinement of movement

I was first introduced to model Cary Farrow while working on a piece, Darling Nicky, in 2012. I have been following Cary's work since, hoping to feature more. I love how natural and beautifully his movement and poses are and especially loved the emotion in his poses with the armless and plastic 'Nicky'.

Fortunately, when I contacted Dennis Tin Box Photography about featuring more of his images, it was his work with Cary he suggested we spotlight. When describing Cary, I loved that Dennis used 'incredible grace' to describe Cary's movements during the shoot. Grace is a beautiful word and one not used enough when describing male models. Grace is also something, that when the focus of an artist, can come through powerfully in images creating distinctly beautiful captures. You can often see in images from inexperienced or new photographers, when body parts are more important than the male form as a whole.

'I worked with Cary on several occasions and found him to be one of the kindest models I have ever worked with. He has a look about him that is to me intoxicating. On one of the shoots he had just made a bow tie all by himself and was so proud of it. He also had an incredible grace when he posed and when he was just relaxing while I set up the lights for the next pose he would start to sing.'

'I wanted to use an old chair that I had but didn't want him just to sit in it so I asked him to act as if the chair was his dance partner. Some beautiful shots came from this as well. I hope I can work with him again. He is simply amazing.'
