"The shackle unfolds, loosens, creases, bends, breaks. The figure is released. Often naked. Free from the cloth or paper that wrapped it. It is this sometimes docile and sometimes severe material that offers sensuality. Nudity is other than carnal. She is unvarnished, having nothing to hide. She is truth, nature, simplicity. Frozen, kneeling, pressed against the wall or stretched on the floor, she is seen without showing off. It exists like everything around it, neither more nor less, with perfect equality.

Once free of its package and free of its ropes, reveals a secret, an entity, a soul. Like a present, pure generosity. Like the petals of the flower that deviate, ready to receive. Proud and available.
In this photographic setting, crystallize fragility and refinement. The model takes on the appearance of a jewel. The skin seems enamelled, the eyes gleam of preciousness. No artifice, the gem retains its raw state.

Wild splendor.
