Model: Zoi

Nudity is natural to children but we as a society impose on out young that it is not right once they grow up. Many people in todays society are alienated from nudity and impose a sexual meaning to it, perhaps because they are only exposed to nudity in pornographic images. But nudity is not inherently sexual, it’s how we were born, and we sexualize nudity by making it a taboo.

I'm obsessed with beauty and I’m striving to create pictures which are not only beautiful but are also interesting to watch. I can't help watching how light fall in various environments and especially on the human body. The variety is almost infinite and this is a factor I really like to work with in my pictures. But first and foremost I’m trying to tell a story with my images and infuse emotion. I create my images (create not capture) to be exactly that; a story, perhaps a fairytale or maybe a sculpture. I edit/distort/modify images (and models shapes) to underline my view of beauty, and direct attention where I want it, just like a magician doing a sleigh of hand. It may be trickery, it may not be real but it hopefully leaves you impressed, amused or entertained if for a short while after viewing it.
