Herbarius [2011] <  Corpora Lucida

The series Herbarius is the result of a search for symbiosis between the human body and nature. Its primary intention is to emphasize the expression of nude in photography through a more contemporary angle.

Fundamental elements in these photos are the projected flowers and plants that give a delicate and gentle hue on the naked body, a veil of mystery that leads us in a fairy-tale world far beyond reality. This unique effect is achieved by using an episcope, an analog projector that can project images of a chosen subject on a solid surface, in this case, the naked body.
