Photographer Nathalie Samain beautifully stages her models in minimalistic images in a very graphical style. Always clear cut and alluring, she invites to explore the essence straight away. By playfully introducing unexpected elements in her images, Samain deliberately breaks their perfection. The effect is often astonishing and slightly tongue-in-cheek. In recent fashion series, she puts together visually contrasting worlds, creating a stunning contrast in a single shot.
Nathalie also masters the art of celebrating true female beauty. She excels in finding the uniqueness and strength of every subject. In a playful way, she then juxtaposes this individuality with modern day clichés. Her work evokes the complete woman, composed of her procreating, loving and professional self.
