Kozlovskiy shows his fluency in the various tropes and motifs from fashion photography, editorial and narrative artistic photography. Here he shows the resplendent white skinned nude afloat in a gray time worn boat, her ophelia like appeal stunning against the black water, a rather gothic juxtaposition of the beautiful with the aged.
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.
