I always love it when people are open for trying new things. For instance posing naked in front of my camera. That is particularly nice, especially since it's extremely hard to find people who would voluntarily be ready to do such a thing. I've always wanted to, but this is my first time shooting actual nudes. Therefore, huge thanks to Susa who decided to help me with this little project. And to my father for helping me by carrying around this ridiculously heavy glass wall (through which is shot some of these). I can't even describe how thankful I am! I think the human body is simply beautiful, and that's why I wanted to photograph it. I felt that the most suitable place to shoot photos like this would be in a forest. Completely unmodified (with the exception of a nipple piercing), unapologetic, exposed, in all honesty. Raw. But extremely beautiful.
