Female naked bodies displayed on a black monochromatic background. Photographer Marius Budu uses nudity to express the human condition. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark he has been working with nude subjects since 2006.
The women’s bodies are perfectly aligned and arranged. Forming shapes where the bodies can no longer be discerned individually. The overall images depict an architectural element rather than a gathering of women. Even though they are naked, there’s no ambiguous feeling upon looking at the photographs. Marius Budu plays with the light and shade; accentuating the different tones of the flesh. The models attitude is strong and focused, creating a powerful configuration.
The message is simple and efficient: to unveil the limitless potential of the human body. In the ‘Flesh Structures’ series, Marius Budu uses the bodies of women to tell us a story, to communicate his vision. Using the most basic mean in its original form, he translates his fascination for the human body into intense visual sculptures, inviting the viewer to “wonder or simply absorb”.
