In this enthralling photo of a lone nude against the verdant and dramatic backdrop of a craggy ocean beach, Kozlovskiy uses the architectural dynamism of the rock to frame his goddess-like subject, whose silken skin and sensual body seem to have emerged through a magical source. An outstanding example of the artist's ability to use leitmotifs from erotica, portraiture, fashion and nature photography to command attention.
About the Artist
Known for his exquisite vision of the erotic feminine form, self-taught Russian photographer Arkadiy Kozlovskiy (b. 1964, Germany − d. 2014, Russia) came to his art late in life. Nevertheless, within a short span of merely three years he would become highly regarded, and sought after for his enchanting portraits of desire, embodied in pictures of sumptuously striking nudes.
