Shades of the Caribbean

Shades of the Caribbean draws upon the rich diverse history of the West Indies. Photographed by the renowned Photographer, Ken Maguire. Both in the studio and location capturing the essence of its astonishingly beautiful young women. Artistic nudes for the fine art collector.

" I hope you enjoy this site as much as I did shooting the wide range of studies displayed in the various galleries. Some setups took longer than others. Many of the shots were taken and brainstormed at the last moment. The girls portrayed are all amateurs and most have regular occupations. This Project has been on going over a period of 25 years. This journey has taken me through the changes of large and medium format film photography to high end digital. I feel very fortunate to have worked with both. Enjoy
