The Love Story behind Art in Motion
Meet Dean Fidelman
Fidelman was born on December 17, 1955 and began climbing and making Art at age fifteen. He discovered Yosemite Valley a year later and has called it Home ever since. Dean was the “unofficial photographer” for the Stone Masters beginning in the 1970’s. His iconic project, Stone Nudes, first came to life in 1999 as a way for him to extract the passion of climbing—Art in motion. The project spans three generations of climbers. Dean’s favorite photo in the world is the original “Nose in a Day” by Mike White, featuring Billy Westbay, Jim Bridwell, and John Long.
“There’s FM, there’s AM, and then there’s the channels that are off-shore. What do you want to be? And you have that choice…but also, if you just express who you are, the choice becomes clearer. Everything is obvious. As an Artist, for me, going back to that whole beginning of that path—understanding that, feeling that same energy, and then trying to document it, moving it forward, and then paying it forward is all—you know, it’s not a linear thing. It’s circular. And you’ve got to understand that. And you go with it.”—Dean Fidelman, on describing Art and Energy.
