In this moment of sweetness, the body is highlighted by the darkness that surrounds it. The model seems to protect her body from this lack of light by covering her front with sheets, choosing her breasts as a point of support. The light projected on her back, her hips, her buttocks and her legs seems to bring her a warmth to which she surrenders by plunging deep within herself.

Paul Koruna (II) – France
Framing the model from the bottom up is a technique Koruna mastered in a way that had almost become his signature.
This photo is one of the most appealing nudes ever seen as it subliminally propels the viewer’s inner eye to a layer of space unknown to them. Call it enduring lightness or whatever, the feeling is complex and it gives more than interpretation. Aesthetically, the model seems to float in a space that hugs the body to leave no room for imperfections.
Cadrager le modèle de bas en haut est une technique que Koruna maîtrisait d’une manière qui était presque devenue sa signature. Cette photo est l’un des nus les plus attrayants jamais vus car elle propulse de manière subliminale l’œil intérieur du spectateur vers une couche d’espace qui lui est inconnue. Appelez cela une légèreté durable ou quoi que ce soit, le sentiment est complexe et il donne plus qu’une interprétation. Esthétiquement, le modèle semble flotter dans un espace qui épouse le corps pour ne laisser aucune place aux imperfections.

Ergy Landau (I) – France
Far from being silent, this is a rather loud prostration. Bones and muscles shout, back blades, spine base and bottom spawns geometrical shapes that swallow the light and taint it black. A superbly dramatic composition.
Laure Albin-Guillot (I) – France
Positioning the models, the lighting and the shooting angle fly this composition up to the realm of perfection. There are words that evoke images and vice-versa. This image brings to mind the concept of tenderness and to the senses a taste of eternity.
Paul Koruna (I) – France
The model injects into this photographic composition a behavioral trait – namely a comforting smile – that rivals, if not complements, central elements such as light and clastic beauty.
Serge de Sazo (I) – France
The model positioned her hands, laid her hips, stretched her legs and tensed her back to create a marvelous bodily design on which the light imprinted a final touch.
Paul de Cordon (I) – France
A perfect orchestration of head angle, look, smile, and waist curve to compose a powerful photographic statement.
M.E. Gentil (I) – France
The dynamic light-dark shades’ play on the model’s skin is an impressionist stroke on a canvas soaked in black.
Gilles Boinet (II)
a poise that is great in its simplicity, strong in its delicate statement…
Gilles Boinet (I)
a gracious mixture of light and shade in which skin and nature espouse each other…
