The artwork on this page was all inspired by photographs that I've taken somewhere on a countryside, along a sandy shoreline, or looking into the sky at the stars. I'm thankful for the inspiration that nature provides. It grants me an opportunity to share the world with you.
In 2020, many people have lost touch with nature during the pandemic. We find ourselves connected through video conferencing and video chat. Each of these platforms allows us to customize the backgrounds that others see. You can right-click on any of these images to save them to your computer, to use in a Zoom meeting.
The images may not be sold, printed or represented as your artwork. Refer others to RobertStanhope.com if they ask about your background. Thank you!
Some of the art shared on this page is available in printed formats on my gallery.

We can generally agree that the face is the most often captured part of the human body. We've all taken selfies. There are engagement photos and wedding photos of couples. On birthdays, there are photographs of the birthday boy or girl blowing out candles. The chest and the backside are also popular vantage points to capture the natural art that is the human body. So what's overlooked?
In my opinion, the feet and the hands. The foundation and the tools we use more than any other parts of our body can be afterthoughts. I did a fashion shoot recently that could have included shoes, but it wasn't the focus. I can argue that we're missing stories when we overlook these areas. The photos below spotlight the hands and the feet to deliver stories.
My father worked in construction his entire life. It wasn't until I looked at his hands, on his last day on this Earth, that I heard those stories through calluses and cracked skin.
I encourage other photographers to capture the less popular stories our bodies tell.
