Jean-Paul Bourdier – Bodyscapes

Jean-Paul Bourdier

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whether he’s blending bodies into the landscape or creating vivid silhouettes that stand out against a brilliant backdrop, photographer Jean-Paul Bourdier’s Bodyscapescollection is insanely gorgeous. The California-based photographer combines performance art, body paints, and magnificent landscapes to create these stunning images where natural human bodies intertwine with the environment.

The artist chooses to photograph only on film, using no digital manipulation, which awakens a sense of timeless wonder in the traditionally created images. His photographs often have a strong sense of symmetry, both in shape and in featured color palettes. Mirroring the landscape, the bodies complement each scene with just the right visual combinations of physical interruption and environmental serenity.

Bourdier says “Rather than being a mere recording of an encounter between event and photographer, the photograph is an event of its own: long prepared, and yet full of unexpected moments; a still manifestation of an encounter between desert light, body light, and camera eye.” Via My Modern Met.
