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.

Zak Cassar Photography

Amazing!

As a native of Toronto, Canada, it comes as no surprise that Zak Cassar’s boyhood dream consisted of playing professional hockey. At the age of five, Zak’s father put a camera in Zak’s hands and began teaching him about the composition of photography. When he began seeing the beauty of the world through the lens of a camera, Zak’s dreams took on a whole new view. The magic he could create ignited a passion in Zak for still photography and began his love affair with the camera. Zak began his career in music photography; filming bands, concerts, live promotions and interviews. In 2010, Zak’s major breakthrough in film photography came in the role of “book photographer” for the TV mini-series.  When Zak isn’t behind the camera, you will find him playing hockey or football, sailing, or focusing on the underwater world he has created in his salt water aquarium.
