During a shoot with the beautiful Riley Anne last fall, her close friend Sophie came up in conversation. I expressed how I've wanted to work with her, but she never seems to be around. Riley mentioned she was arriving in New York that night and staying with her. She made the introduction, and we scheduled a shoot.
Water & Photography. This exhibit is about having those two dear friends close to me. Water and time, roots of my genes. Water contributes to my fulfillment. Being pleasant, useful, essential, my senses delight in it.
It is strange indeed to see where fate can lead you. A 25 years ago Nathalie Daoust, a Canadian photographer, went to New York City to do a shoot of mens clothing on location in the Carlton Arms Hotel.
A rare and exquisite working moment captured between a photographer and his model. I have spent my entire life as an artist. It is not what I do. It is who I am. In the art community, I have seen enough of the good, the bad and the mediocre.
Swiss photographer Martin Zurmühle poetically highlights the beauty of nature and the female nude, exploring the complexities of life by blending a powerful psychological photographic portrayal resonating with a strong sense of empowerment.
The world of photography is foreign to me. I’ve been in front of your lens many times, but I never pay attention to the technicalities. I’d rather have a conversation with you anyway. And I think that is the reason why our work speaks.
Erotica: For me, photography is a rite, a moment in which my mind enters a state in which I do not live daily ... clear my mind and focus my attention and intuition on things that have real value for me,
My childhood I've spent at my grandmother's house in Romania, near Carpathian Mountains. Seeing human's strong bond with earth, observing nature, landscapes around influenced my understanding of earth beauty and mens connexion with it.
The photographs I made for this series were neglected nearly three years, before I’ve chosen some to be shown to the public. This time distance is likely not just a duration between two dates, but rather distance between two personas.
Chaiken’s series explores sexuality and the idea that the largest sexual organ for any human being is the brain. The model was pleased with the results and other models attracted by the effort, and intrigued by nudity but in a secret manner, stepped forward to pose as well.
True eroticism should always be half-way between poetry and sexuality. But as an European (Romanian born) with Mediterranean roots (my mother’s family came from Greece) now living on the East Coast of the United States, I find myself being part of a culture that is both amusing and ridiculous in its faux puritanism.
The female nudes of Andreas Theologitis present themselves nonchalant and proud, courageous and imposing, familiar and remote. These black and white photographs have been created following the codes established through varying approaches to the theme of the nude
Ghosting is generally defined as breaking up with someone by ignoring this person, avoiding any kind of contact in real life. It means that someone suddenly disappears from another person’s life without any explanation
Like some photographers, I am interested in Truth and Beauty. I am interested in quietude, in making the viewer spend some time in front of an image and become a partner in the process of seeing. The function of art is not to escape reality, but to help us experience it more completely.
These images, similar to his former works, turn insistently around the exploration of particular aspects of the nude, where aesthetics are combined with an almost ideological dimension. In this body of work he tries to give a different stage to his models.
Nyari’s series Valkyrie Ink portrays Eowyn, a young woman who endured a great deal of trauma since her childhood and who, in an act of rebellion irregardless of the soul's desire for flight, from the age of 16 on adorned her body with an abundance of tattoos.
From an initially amateurish approach, he decided to attend some technical courses, focusing mainly on aspects that interested me more than others, like the body, the study of lights, the expressiveness.
The new project from Andreas Theologitis is a study of the human body. His photographic work turns insistently around the exploration of particular aspects of the nude, where aesthetics are combined with an almost ideological dimension.
To Seif, the watery figures are alive, fluid, creatures of nature. Not just figures in nature, they are nature. The land-based figures are more formally presented. They are posed compositions of the figure against water, natural or quarried granite, and other backgrounds.
When I finished my first novel, about one year ago, besides a sense of relief (I spent over a decade working on it), I wondered if there were any readers left in the world. At a very basic level, my book is a story about a photographer who needs a rebirth.
The latest from Andreas Theologitis is a study of the human body. His photographic work turns insistently around the exploration of particular aspects of the nude, where aesthetics are combined with an almost ideological dimension.
Whatever the version, he has given us the English word Tantalise - the embodiment of promise, flirtation or eroticism - just out of reach?I am drawn to the way B&W Photography conveys these tantalising glimpses. Glimpses that take on their own life in ways that enable each individual the freedom of their own unique interpretation.
At the moment Peter Zelei creates images, but it wasn’t always like this. He is originally a trained pharmacist. He actually has a master and a Dr. title. But he has tried lots of things in the past years.
There is no such thing as compromising with nature; we simply abide by how it lives and exist as a part of it. Nature is very relevant to each individual’s well-being, but more so than it is part of us, we are part of it.
This series depicts the process we all go through in learning to love oneself. It is an awkward, joyful, illuminating, exhausting, humorous and messy affair. Rapprochement is a word I believe approaches this state.
Olivier Valsecchi's new series "Amazon" is a gallery of post-apocalyptic portraits where half-prehistoric half-Disney characters are photographed in front of an ancient wall carpet depicting an eerie jungle.
It all started with a dream, a collection of fears, and a few questions. A dream of a nude woman walking inside a bookstore on a rainy night, leafing through books damaged by rain. The bookstore had no roof, the woman looked lost, and the rain was turning all the pages into mush.
Sensual Fragments is meant to be an ode to sensuality in which the women is displayed in her purest form. As part of a minimalist approach, this series leaves no room for any tricks so as to focus only on the essential.
Artist Reka Nyari has been shooting nudes all over the roofs of New York City for the past 3 years. Inspired by her feeling of loneliness from when she first arrived to the city, as well as her desire to conquer the Big Apple.
There is a species of frog whose brain will not register if lunch is moving out of reach of its sticky tongue. Its eyes still send signals of a receding meal, but it has evolved in such an extraordinary manner, that there is no part of its brain allocated to receive those signals.
Barbara Iweins is a Belgian photographer who has lived for some time in Amsterdam.She is now back in Brussels with her latest delicate photographs of women bathing. A collection of vulnerable moments infused with soothing colors of milky waters with hues of pink, mint and blue.
In this series I present the nude body as a detail, moved into the background. The architectural lines are simple, the posture is straight, natural and static. The face is relaxed and without emotional expressions. A nude that is reduced to simple presence.
Sooner or later we think about our ancestry, about land we have sprouted from and will go into. The project “Roots” deals with two planes: ongoing author’s life with its comfortable conditions of existing and affections and life on the land with its hardships and worries,
I believe that, although photography is somehow based on reality, every photograph is only partly objective, and is always an interpretation of that reality. I love photographing the nude. In this case, I might say I’m not interested in glamour photography.
When I first started taking erotic photographs they were for myself and nobody saw them apart from a few friends. They languished in my photo albums for some years until my first book, Bernadinism: How to Dominate Men and Subjugate Women, was published in 2001 by a Swiss publisher.
Nakedness is usually reserved for the private realm. We make sure the curtain is pulled before we undress. On the beach, we wriggle awkwardly behind towels to preserve our modesty and a dropped corner is cause for deep blushes.
Merely a portraying of nudity not in its simplistic undressed over-arousing form, more like its intimate, exposed gift of closure in a woman’s own space. More delicate or abrupt, in a rather organic relation to her personal background.
Born and raised in Poland. I have done IT studies on Poznan's polytechnique. Meantime of my professional work I have started taking pictures in free time. First landscapes, then portraits of friends, strangers.
French photographer Olivier Valsecchi's new Drifting series is a journey through art history where each picture merges the tradition of the reclining nude with the still life painting genre from Flanders.

The female body has long been her main subject, but in recent years she has also successfully begun to examine the skin and texture of flowers, particularly those on the brink of fading, and the bark of and shapes of trees.
It was at art college that I had my first taste of artistic nude photography. Despite being a pimple faced naive 18 year old at art college who was full of nerves, I managed to create some beautiful black and white studio nudes of one of my fellow students.
The "Féminité" wants to be a collection of shots taken from independent sets it as a collection of set.Vorrei conclude this personal quest of images with an exhibition (the second in this case) that collects the essence of what I wanted to tell and tell.
