Polish fine art photographer Waclaw Wantuch presents the nude figure in unusual and surprising ways. The models in his highly stylized black and white photographs are captured in dramatic positions against a vacant background. Many times they are cropped and contorted in a way that is completely unrecognizable as human. Each model’s body is tense with a compressed energy, where muscled limbs, perfect breasts and buttocks are bent in a way that is reminiscent of those seen on ancient Greek figures. Careful lighting enhances details like texture and moisture on the skin, also creating an elegant study of tone and form. Wantuch treats the body like a sculpture, full of repressed emotions that can only be expressed through its beauty, sexuality and and extremity.
