this is nothing to hide
Words are not even needed
Because the body speaks for itself.
—Victor Lévy Beaulieu
“Émotions à nu” is a series of female portraits, each without a face.
These photos are an attempt to convey the “naked truth”: human, beautifully unadorned, without makeup. Women are plural. They are fragile. They are strong.
This series is an intimate journey, an outreach into the emotional state of another. It is a quiet quest, a path to balance. It is about physical and emotional self-acceptance, it is about serenity.
