BODIES 6 Woman 1 Man
In this series, Nadav Kander latches on to a photographic genre which today is a little neglected: the nude. The morbid paleness of the bodies, their precise positioning and an absence of any eye contact, act as a barrier to any eroticism and challenges our perception of what makes a body beautiful. This work will be displayed as a world premiere at l’Espace Quai1, the permanent exhibition space of the Festival Images which features five yearly exhibitions of photographs having featured in Vevey International Photo Award.
