“In his photography, James Houston creates a dialogue between the beauty of the human body and the changing forms of nature. Colour and shapes meet in an almost sensorial experience.” Stefano Tonchi, Editor in Chief, W Magazine
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
Recognized as one of the world’s leading beauty photographers, New York based James Houston has made a selection of 250 of his finest Body, Beauty and Dance photographs available for the first time as limited edition prints, with a portion of proceeds going to international charitable causes close to Houston’s heart such as Move for AIDS, Global Green USA and Breast Cancer.
This range of photographs is now available on http://www.jameshoustondesign.com (JHD) and includes his never before seen Nature and Friesian horse series. An authenticity card containing the title of the work, James Houston’s signature and the edition number accompanies each print.
Many of the images which have been exhibited internationally were created for various passion projects Houston worked on, raising awareness and funds for a range of causes from HIV/AIDS to Breast Cancer and the environment. Aligning with Houston’s mission to have his creative work benefit the aforementioned causes, a percentage of profits from the JHD image sales will benefit those organizations, thus continuing the mission of each project. Over the last fifteen years Houston has earned incredible international publicity, attention and respect for his community projects. These projects have raised close to two million dollars for various non-profit organizations and brought valuable awareness to important causes.
“As an artist I am grateful to be able to raise awareness and funds for causes I feel passionate about. I’m excited that James Houston Design can continue this mission on a larger international platform.”
Houston has travelled the globe in a career that spans over twenty-five years shooting for the world’s leading brands and publications. Clients such as Vogue, L’Oreal Paris, Donna Karan, Hugo Boss, Givenchy and GAP appreciate his eye for beauty and celebrate his talent.
For his recent project, NATURAL BEAUTY, Houston turned his eye to nature for inspiration, with the goal to raise awareness and funds for the environment and sustainable living. The project launched in 2013 in partnership with MILK NYC and environmental non-profit Global Green USA. Houston shot a series of striking portraits featuring some of the world’s leading celebrities and models including Adrian Grenier, Emma Watson, Christy Turlington, Karlie Kloss, Arizona Muse and Anja Rubik. These captivating photographs bring together two of Houston’s great passions – the human form and the natural world.
“In his photography, James Houston creates a dialogue between the beauty of the human body and the changing forms of nature. Colour and shapes meet in an almost sensorial experience. You can feel the heat and the touch just from looking at the images.”

In April 2015 Houston will officially launch James Houston Design, a platform to show and sell a range of beautiful image inspired products such as home goods and design objects to allow people to bring Houston’s natural beauty into their environments. Before shooting ‘Natural Beauty’ in 2013 Houston designed and built ‘Ananda’, a contemporary lake house and interior experience in upstate New York. The stunning result has been featured internationally in numerous leading interior and architecture publications including Belle Australia, LUXE U.S. and Architectural Digest. http://jameshoustondesign.com/blogs/press/15595111-peace-time-belle-magazine-cover-story. This was the first step to realizing his dream of creating a design vision and brand based on a mind/lifestyle integration philosophy.
