There’s only so much that can be done to a nude body if you want to take a nude photo, but Paris-based photographer Dani Olivier has figured it out. Often employing dancers as models, he uses projectors in a darkened studio to bathe women in coloured light and geometric shadows, transforming their bodies into surreal works of art.
“The female body is beautiful, and I am working to produce beautiful images,” Olivier said. “A woman’s body is eternal. For ten thousand years, it has had the same curves, the same shape, the same rhythm and it is something to admire. I developed my technique with models about 8 years ago. I knew there was a lot of potential after I experimented with a few lights and designs.”
