For more than 25 years, the nude series by Paolo Roversi called »Nudi« is one of the most inspiring and aesthetic nude series in contemporary photography. A plain composition and a gentle use of light make the presented women appear like gracile painted nude studies. So, the viewer’s attention is directed to the shape and the pettiness of the female body. Next to photographs of Kate Moss, Tatjana Patitz and Guinevere van Seenus, the exhibition also includes nudes of models like Laetitia Casta, as well as lately produced male »Nudi«-photographs for the first time.
Exhibition from November 26, 2011 until January 28, 2012 Camera Work, Berlin www.camerawork.de
