365 Days Of Dark Art : 43 / Sylwia Makris

My current photography infatuation is Sylwia Makris, a Polish artist based in Germany.

She photographs people. People who are strong or delicate, broken or dynamic. She photographs faces of our time-and in doing so gives a face to our time. Nakedness is the most natural state. And in our day the most intrusive and common-every-where naked bodies are used to tempt, advertise and sell. Nakedness can only say as much as it is allowed to say. Sylwia Makris respects the nude body as part of a story that must be told. As part of a stroy that tels of people, nakedness regains its original magic, its archaic power and its complexity of expression in Makris’ photos. Until the viewer sometimes feels more naked than the model in the image. – From Sylwia Makris’s website.
