Women regain control of their bodies in Arianna Genghini’s shots

Women regain control of their bodies in Arianna Genghini’s shots

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Photography

Sensual and ethereal, Arianna Genghini‘s photographs are not only beautiful, but are the manifesto of a way of perceiving the woman’s body far from clichés and preconceptions. 

Arianna is a young photographer who grew up in the countryside, where she cultivated a deep bond with nature that she did not leave even when she moved to Milan. Once she graduated in Fashion Design she decided to attend a Master in Fashion Photography, where she refined her style and aesthetics. 

Her background and her studies are the reasons why Arianna Genghini’s photographs stand out both for the attention to detail, from light to styling, but also for the message they carry. 

In her photographic projects, especially Fiori Nudi and the latest Green Generation, Arianna explores the beauty of the female body in its naturalness. We see girls of all ages, so with different stories and pasts, take off all the weight of clothes and with them the restrictions of society and rediscover a bond with nature and themselves. 

In this case nudity does not express the passionate and sensual side of the woman, but her freedom, it is the demonstration of how one can really be master of one’s own body, clashing with a society that has increasingly objectified it, making it lose value.  

“Nudity is not an end but the means to claim ownership over a woman’s body that belongs only to those directly concerned”.

We have selected some of her shots, but to find out more visit Arianna Genghini’s website and follow her on Instagram so as not to miss her next works.

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea and his intimate and emotional shots

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea and his intimate and emotional shots

Giulia Guido · 4 days ago · Photography

How great would it be to sneak into other people’s lives? To follow them in their intimacy, safe from being seen? That’s exactly what Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea allows us to do. 

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea, on Instagram as @greyheavens, was born in Ukraine and at the age of three was adopted by a Basque family. His adolescence was spent in different Spanish cities such as Irun, Valladolid and Madrid, until a few years ago he decided to move to London, where he still lives and works today. 
Art in all its forms, from dance to music, has always been part of Aritz’s life, but in the end, photography won du all. 

“There came a time when I knew that I couldn’t do every type of art, I opted to follow Photography as this gave me the freedom to talk about life in a way others could interact with. “

We, as soon as we saw them, fell in love with his shots. 

They are intimate photographs, in which do we see boys, girls, young couples captured in their everyday life, in their private moments, in which every mask falls and the truest feelings remain. 

“I would define my photography as intimate, vulnerable and even psychological, but above all, human.”

Through the works of Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea we sneak into the lives of others, we become invisible spectators, hidden behind doors and windows. We get lost in the melancholic faces and feel all the heaviness of the body and emotions let go. 

Below is a selection of his shots, but to find out more follow him on Instagram

Exploration of femininity in Prue Stent’s photography

Exploration of femininity in Prue Stent’s photography

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

Prue Stent is a young Sydney based photographer who knows what femininity is today and shows it to us without too many frills.

She began to investigate the world of photography in adolescence, at sixteen. And in her four photographic projects, a common thread seems to link all her shots: the women. Sarcastic, beautiful, abandoned, surreal, intriguing, a little extravagant. She bows her uses a range of colors to express all the femininity in the world. Soft tones that smell of marshmallows.

Prue says she likes to work spontaneously. And this is perceptible in every shot, which seems like an instinctive game. This helps to experiment, to explore, to reflect on a new beauty linked to the female body that is not an object to be immortalized, but a statue that shows her beauty only when she is left free to act spontaneously.

Ironic and surreal photos by Kostis Fokas

Ironic and surreal photos by Kostis Fokas

Buddy · 11 hours ago · Photography

Kostis Fokas is is a conceptual photographer whose artistic practice revolves around the exploration of the complexities of the human body.

His work focuses on the interplay between youth culture and eroticism and widely reflects aspects of his inner self. He is irreverent, sensual, arrogan, humorous, provocative and energetic.

He was born in Greece, precisely in Athens, where probably growing up among statues of gods and water lilies, he understood that behind the pose of a body there is a world of forms to explore.

Boredom and reality do not interest him and his shots prove it. He knows how to handle the world and his room to his liking. By controlling every color detail, every light source, he creates a shot that is an estrangement from everyday life, that he knows of Tumblr and surrealism.
