The Pursuit of Beauty, Grace and Perfection

Preorder Tatoo book by Scene360

Nude photography by Klaus Kampert.

Warning: This post may contain images with nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.

Notes from the artist’s statement (from his official website):

My work is mainly concerned with the human body. Still, I do not consider my images to be classic nudes or erotic photography, although these genres may have an impact on my work.

I am not interested in showing beauty as an outward phenomenon. Rather I would like to present the human being as a whole: Body and mind united.

By picturing nakedness in an image, it is to reveal mind and emotion, not only showing the body as such.

Among my models especially the ballet dancers are those who succeed in expressing this wholeness in a particular manner. Their bodies bespeak the constant pursuit of beauty, grace, achievement and perfection.
