British photographer, Laura Stevens, lives and works in Paris. She has several interesting portrait projects, including Exiled and A Woman’s Realm (featured below). I have noticed a trend of more women shooting nudes, and this series in particular feels completely comfortable and natural, her subjects at ease in their environments. The backgrounds fall away to reveal hints of a life lived, and the natural state of her subjects (a birth control patch on a leg, no extreme attempts of shape the figure) relax easily into their poses.
Laura doesn’t add statements or text to her site so much if left up to the viewer’s subjectivity.
