There is an incongruity to the photographic works of Zach Hyman that may baffle some while entertaining others. But the common thread throughout is the thought-provoking concepts about man, nature and culture. Stripping his subjects of the clothes humans often hide themselves in, Zach Hyman places them everywhere from the great outdoors to dilapidated planes and empty pools. The result are images that are imaginatively quirky and bold. Interestingly, despite their nakedness and unfamiliar surroundings, they appear naturally comfortable.

Born and raised in Northern California, Zach Hyman has since traveled around the world to places including Israel, Mexico and India to capture his visually striking photographs. Beautiful Decay writes, "The way he captures light and contextualizes these bodies lend his work a universal quality that is at once identifiable and particular."
