The Extremist

Flash photography

Flipping through a stack of black
and white postcards near the regis-
ter at Shaman Drum Bookshop, you
come across vintage portraits of James
Joyce, Virginia Woolf - and then sud-
denly - a faded shot of two naked men
leaning over the passenger side win-
dow of an Ann Arbor cop car. But it's
not a pornographic gag tossed in to
shock the stuffy literary postcard col-
lector - it's a Harvey Drouillard.
Drouillard earned his reputation
in Ann Arbor in the spring of 1994 for
photographing nude models in front of
city landmarks.
That year, Harvey rented out a part
of his large downtown apartment to
a nude photography workshop. on a
whim, Harvey borrowed manual cam-
era and a roll of film to shoot during
Hash Bash. He got addicted.
"Its such an adrenaline buzz," said
Harvey of shooting nudes in public.
"You never forget it."

tographer who has shot in more than

22 North American cities, still lives and
works in Ann Arbor. Models are mostly
local volunteers - sometimes students
- who average around 24 years old.
"It started at the strangest time,"
Drouillard said, referring to the onset
of his career. Mid-1990s AnnArbor was
the focus of negative media attention
due to a rise in violent crime, he said.
"The city saw (my project) as aposi-
tive thing," he said. On his website,
Drouillard maintains the artistic goal
he set at the time: "To make people
It's also to see how much he can get
away with.
According to a 1998 Metro Times
article that followed a Drouillardshoot,
the process went something like this: a
car pulled up in front of a local hang-
out. A clothed young woman stepped
out. With a flash of hand signals and
quick shouts, Drouillard instructed
the girl to drop trou and hit a pose.
Drouillard snapped a couple of shots,
the girl redressed, and they hopped

back into the car and drove away - all
in a matter of seconds.
Early shoots were sporadic.
Drouillard would pick locations as he
walked with models. For his recent
work, Drouillard scopes out the loca-
tion, does practice runs and coordi-
nates hand signals with models in
Drouillard said people's reactions
to the shot are often more interest-
ing than the models themselves. Most
people around the shoot don't seem to
notice, he said.
And the ones who do often seem to
ignore it.
"People's true manners come out
when something really bizarre hap-
pens," he said.
Drouillard is still considering doing
a massive nude shoot in Michigan Sta-
dium. He's been rethinking the idea.
"The world record is 63,000 nude
people in one shot," he said. "It would
make history."

Rio bar in 2003. Photographer Harvey Drouil-
lard began shooting nudes on the streets of Ann
Arbor in 1994.
