“I aim for abstract.
I would call it abstract nude landscapes.
Trying, instead of capturing a moment,
to create a place with something we see everyday.
The human body. An imaginary place with
an amazing object.” Billy Kidd
I think what really blows me away about Sarah’s work, especially these type of organic sculptures she creates, is how every piece of hers demonstrates a completely out-of-the-box thought process. Her little creations depict an amazing fusion between words, images and ideas.
Elizaveta’s Gold Project is a beautiful, surreal experience. Using gold paint to cover one’s body and taking pictures of it is not unheard of, yet in this case the results are certainly unparalleled.
These photographs are sharp and perfectly executed, I love the delicate way Elizaveta freezes the movement of smoke, paint, water and bodies.
Here’s a great submission found on our Flickr group (850 members !).
In this project Ramel has found a unique way of capturing bodies in movement in different contexts. There’s a lot going on in these shots, it’s almost as if the subjects were physically interpreting a reaction to their environments.
I love how Ramell described his sources of inspiration in this interview:
“It’s hard to articulate my inspiration when it is everything; from the gesture of a person’s yawn to the vocals of a car’s tail pipes. For me, everything parallels to everything. Ideas are instinctual. They, along with concepts, drive my work.”
Chelak’s square format photography is stunning. This series of pictures of different body parts is particularly beautiful, and sensual.
Here’s a selection of very interesting shots by Eylül Aslan. She has a talent for composing pictures involving some sort of bodily relationship with spatial surroundings. I see this sort of photography quite often on the net and although its obvious the idea behind the shot is similar across photographers, it’s rarely as well executed as in Eylül does it.
That said, Eylül works in lots of different photography styles too check it out.
It was perfect timing to come across Gregory’s work, because even though I’ve always had an interest in photographing body parts, I only recently started thinking of how to approach this. Gregory’s photography of partly naked body parts is beautiful because of its subtlety. The bodies are hidden behind shadows and light patterns that leave the rest up to our imagination.
