Patrick Gomme - Chair Corps
Patrick Gomme is a French photographer working on what is my main obsession: the body. And more specifically, the female body. But here, it's not the female attributes on which he focus his composition, no, it's the skin, its relief, its texture, body skin as a landscape, with all the historic traces, like some geology of the enveloppe in which our flesh is wrapped. The pictures are not modified afterwards (at least it's said so). And with the light effects, we have a fascinating imagery of the real charm of the body. Never erotic, never anatomic, it provides a photographic equivalent of the ancient painting. A site to discover more here.
