Nude, not naked. Sensual resonance, aesthetic harmony, masterful technique, composition. An idyll to the plasticity of the human figure. Ethereal. Fragile. Almost mythical. A body of work flirting with Symbolism and the Viennese Secession. An irresistible courtship.
Bewegungsstudien || Motion Studies
Rudolf Koppitz (1884 – 1936)
Scanned from a postcard booklet sitting on a pile of books in front of the mantelpiece, decommissioned a long time ago, in place of a fire; the cheap print and basic scanner adding a grainy texture and a sweet aura of nostalgia.
The first photograph, ”Motion Study”, is included in the ”Masters of Light: Treasures from The Royal Photographic Society Collection” exhibition at the London Science Museum’s Media Space gallery, until March 2015.
