This book from Greek photographer, Manolis Tsantakis, is one of those wonderful finds that deserves to capture the art world's attention. It is a fabulous book of nude photography (and poetry presented in both Greek and English).
The nudes here from Manolis Tsantakis are a powerful, artistic statment. All are shot outdoors in the majestic and breathtaking scenery that is Greece. The rugged splendor of the terrain stands in stark contrast to the soft and beautiful and utterly feminine subjects of this book. And it's this eerie juxtaposition that gives this work its power. The female subjects as well as the scenery are quite beautiful, but difficult it may be to believe, there is a feeling of isolation and despondency here. It's not a negative quality at all, but is instead a melodious sense of melancholy. It's enchanting ... and that's just what we have here - and magical collection of imagery from an artist operating at the height of his power. Hopefully the world will take notice.
