The female portraits by Nicholas Fols

The female portraits by Nicholas Fols

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Photography

Disturbing, sad, melancholy, tormented and extraordinarily perfect. These are the faces immortalized in Nicholas Fols‘ shots, a young photographer currently based in Milan. 

Despite his young age, his name is already internationally recognized both in the field of photography and fashion, in fact, Nicholas, in addition to creating true masterpieces behind the camera, never shirks from putting himself in front of the lens, whether his own or that of other photographers such as, for example, that of Pasquale Autorino aka Siermond

But in this case, we want to focus on his shots that as subject have mainly female faces. When they look straight into the lens we are captured by their hypnotic, almost glacial looks that fascinate us so much that we think that yes, they are looking right at us. 

Other times, instead, looking at his photographs we have the sensation of being right next to the models, of spying on them while they are doing their make-up, while they are mirrored, wrapped in a tormented, suspended, almost surreal atmosphere, where everything seems so delicate that it can be swept away with a blow. Hold your breath!

And in the end, the only thing we want is to be one of those girls, Nicholas Fols’ next muse. 

We have selected some of his shots, but to find out more go to Nicholas Fols’ Instagram profile

Yenata, the NSFW gets even more perturbing

Yenata, the NSFW gets even more perturbing

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

Yenata is a Korean photographer who produces strongly perturbing and provocative NSFW images. Her shots have been published on Playboy.
Yenata is a Korean photographer who started shooting as a hobby when she graduated in fashion design from the university. Since 2016, however, she has been completely focused on photography and shooting her friends with provocative images that give us an overview of the carefree nature of modern Korean youth.

Despite being an emerging talent, the artist has already published in Nylon and Playboy. Yenata’s unique NSFW style explores the intense contrasts between the shades of red and black and the unshakable looks of her subjects that leave a lasting impression on viewers:

“I like strong moods. It’s really simple, but strong. Most of the subjects are friends that I often shoot naturally, as if it were a game”.

Yenata reveals the sensual face of Korean youth without embarrassment, but as if it were part of everyday life. Continuing her passion for fashion, Yenata has worked with designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Vivienne Westwood, creating original works.

“I’m usually inspired by myself, my friends, music, movies, dreams and nature; everything. I remember and record these things to photograph”.

Although Yenata may be young, she is definitely on the rise not only in her home country, South Korea but also internationally. The perturbing and allusive images are part of a general and sexualized view of the fashion world, the world of young people and the primordial expression of creativity.

Femininity in black and white by Giangiacomo Pepe

Femininity in black and white by Giangiacomo Pepe

Buddy · 1 month ago · Photography

Photography is obsession. Obsession of stopping time, obsession of the gaze, of insinuating itself between gestures and their meanings.

Giangiacomo Pepe is a ravenous Genoese photographer, who constantly reveals his voracious, sinful and voyeuristic gaze.

His images in black and white, intense, visceral, cheeky, shot on film, reveal his passion for the details of the female body, for the spontaneous gestures, the explicit details, the shadows they draw.

Moments of passion, stopped with spontaneous enthusiasm, on the unmade bed, on a makeshift balcony or in a messy kitchen. Images that reveal the desire for him, but also at the same time a candid curiosity towards female intimacy.

The female nude without half measures.

The sensuality of the women portrayed by Sofiia Lupul

The sensuality of the women portrayed by Sofiia Lupul

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

The beauty of the women immortalized by the Ukrainian photographer Sofiia Lupul is characterized by a strong taste for detail and nuance. One of the strengths of her images is the emphasis on the languid and sensual gaze, which attracts the viewer, who is enchanted by it. There are also scenes dedicated to the female body, celebrated in its sinuous harmony of forms.

The warm tones of red and orange contribute to conveying a sense of intimacy and delicacy, which is highlighted by details such as, for example, the lace of a brief, the light that caresses the body, a rose held in the hand.

Follow Sophia on Instagram and have a look at our gallery below:
