Stone Nudes by Dean Fidelman is a serie of photographs that got inspired and celebrate the human body through a three generation of women rock climbers.

In his book he presents over a hundred photographs of female rock climbers that he shot over the last ten years. His b/w approach is ideal for revealing the rock climbing spirit and the special connection it creates between the moving human body and the big rock

as an element of nature. Stripped out of any clothes female rock climbers show their bodies naked and full of strength giving us the chance to admire them free of any sexual cliches, Dean Fidelman writes "do not seek to sell or promote anything beyond the experience".
