Olivier Christinat - Nue

Born in France in 1963, this photograph provides with this nude series a fascinating demonstration of the visual power of nudity (here female) to question the condition of human body, sometimes strangely vulnerable compared to most animal ones. Without feathers or hairs, the skin makes us really nude animals. No sensuality here. It's more anatomy than erotism. Let's say an emotional anatomy. One function often omitted when talking about functional anatomy. Sometimes these pictures seem to be paintings. If you can read French, there's a long statement about this series here but I'm not sure sometimes all these words are useless stuff, sort of cerebral masturbation. However mine too so silence. PS. The models are different girls.
