Justine Kurland - Of Woman Born

Usually, I'm not fond of the nudism and back-to-nature imagery, but this photographer, born Polish but living in the US, provides a beautiful imagery, quite Rousseauist actually. Rousseau who wrote «Les femmes sauvages n’ont pas de pudeur, car elles vont nues. Les nôtres en ont encore moins : car elles s’habillent", that one could translate by ". Primitive women have no prudishness, they go naked. Our women have still less: they wear clothes". This series is touching and raises some nostalgia for a lost paradise that maybe was ours. But never will be again. Some sites here or there.
