Note: Contains nudity and sexual references.
Alva Bernadine is a British photographer known for his creative and intriguingly bizarre nude portraits. The series featured here, entitled “Succubus,” draws on the legend of the medieval she-demon of the same name, depicting uncanny female figures; duplicated and conjoined at the waist, they strike provocative poses with their multiple limbs. In the strange crossroads between demonology and fantasy, Bernadine’s succubi mischievously stimulate the imagination while conjuring an anxiety of the supernatural unknown.
