Torkil Gudnason: Body Vase

A. Galerie, Paris

Artist & Agency - Torkil Gudnason - Fine Art : Lookbooks

Torkil Gudnason’s Body Vase juxtaposes flora with human curves, eroticism with innocence, and nature with it’s inherent beauty and allure. There is a quality of mysterious fascination within these images - they are charged with a charm that accompanies temptation. The soft, intimate lighting comes from shooting exclusively with daylight – and allows the viewer into a small, private world consisting only of photographer and model.

His images have drama and a sculptural quality that brings to mind the heft and simplicity of Henry Moore or Modigliani - “I  like distortion as a sculptural effect,” he says. 

Shot over a period of nine months, Body Vase brings together two passions for Torkil – flowers and the human form. It is remarkable that these images were created in-camera, with very little retouching – lending the increased power of authenticity to these images, and leaving us wondering at the beauty that exists within this world.

Well, firstly, for me it is about the work, not about when it was made. Who cares, really? Is the work good, that is what matters for me. I love going through old shoots and picking new winners. And there are many, many more. One day she will see what she did, these years, and how good it was.
Second, sure… by all means find me a model who is as good as Kim and does nudes. I have not met one: the way Kim and I worked together really is very special. No-one else comes close, or they are OK but will not do nudes: prudishness is on the increase, and I am tired of having to explain, time and time again (see the “why nudes” above).
