Arthur Tress - Woman and reinforced concrete
A strange and fascinating series by the quite famous Arthur Tress, a 1940-born American photographer (see his site here) that has a taken large amount of well-known pictures. This one I discovered by accident is very intriguing and possesses a strong semantic power although I don't really understand why. Surely this lean woman body, this fragile flesh close to these agressive concrete structures (in France we call it "béton armé", illustrating the war dimension that is obvious in the pictures). The model share some similarities with Charlotte Rampling but it's not her.
