Unconstrained by either frame...or glass.There are no barriers separating the art from the viewer. Creating an experience in keeping with the freedom and simplicty of the shots
Filmed on the photographer's smartphone...A tablet on the wall shows the printing of this latest collection…. A twist of modernity amongst the traditional. The shots are intimate and revealing…the two women hope that by showing the female form at its most natural…they can help combat intolerance and fanatisme.
