I want to show people as they are, not glorified, no shame - fat, bulges, wrinkles and all. I want the work to be disturbing, unsettling, provocative, challenging, and thought provoking.

— Judy Dater

The most perspective Judy Dater quotes that are new and everybody is talking about

I started photographing men in 1964. Fourteen years later I got a Guggenheim, even so no one would publish the male nudes.


The older I get, the one thing I can trust in myself more than anything else is the way I feel about something. When I photograph I try to be as aware of my feelings as I can be to somehow try and get them out of me and onto the film in terms of the way I am responding or seeing the world.


I've consciously tried to be provocative and disturbing.


I've done a lot of nudes and there's always a sexual charge.


Portraits I've done in the past I've always thought were a reflection of me.
