This is a series of black & white nudes, with dark background as negative space.

This series symbolically depicts the human being as a statue. This is to stress the immutable nature of the self, which beyond all misleading appearance never really changes.

The human being is a social animal that has to adapt to its social environment. But adaptation doesn’t mean change. The mission of the self is self-preservation despite any politically correct consideration. This is why this series also depicts the human being in different posture which all evoke self-protection.

I am a fine art nude photographer based in Spain. I do artistic nude sessions for private clients throughout Europe.
