Fascination with human body was a focal point of photographers since the invention of the medium. Variations on the theme of body explorations are multiple, and so are the approaches. Anyhow, it is certain that such a depictions stood as some kind of anthropological studies. How does a body is perceived towards socially accepted aesthetic norms was and still is a rather frequent topic. Especially focusing on a female body is a provocative subject depending from the personal perspective of an author.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Igor Amelkovich lives and works in Chelyabinsk, Russia.
Igor studied radio engineering and started photographing in 1999 therefore he had never held a camera in his hands. His work is film-based and he uses a Hasselblad 503CW and two lenses, Planar 80/2,8 and Sonnar 150/4.
“Artistically, I maintain two interests: landscape photography and the nude. For me a woman is nature’s concentrated form of beauty. I like to photograph a self-assured subject, ones who’s comfortable sharing her beauty.”
