Arno Rafael Minkkinen is a Finnish-American photographer that came to the United States in 1951. He graduated with a bachelors degree in English and started his photography portfolio in the 70s. His early work focused on portraits that involved artistic interpretations of the human body. His work grew from there into a lot of the nude figure in nature at its purest. The works I want to focus on for this project is from his portfolio "Hands and Feet" and especially on the theme from using the body to frame nature.

I chose this topic because I have a lot of interest in image composition. And using the body to frame nature in similar but alternating ways create different interpretations of the image. And especially focusing on color contrast, none of the image look "empty" in each portion and it portrays a dynamic interaction between human and nature.
