Photography by Polina Ilchenko
We are always on the lookout for something unique. Something you don't see every day. The fact that this gorgeous session took place in a museum is absolutely incredible. There is so much symbolism there, with the perfect sculptures of the human body, with this beautiful woman prancing about, creating her own art with her perfect human body.
It's a beautiful juxtaposition, unraveling in the name of art.
Paulina, the photographer, dove in a little further about her inspiration behind creating this set of images:
"Once we came across the location we knew it's a perfect backdrop for this kind of shoot: art studio filled with natural light and massive sculptures frozen in time. It's the place to be inspired and to inspire as models do posing for the artist, place to show your soul through the body. We wanted to capture those polarities: movement and stillness, strength and fragility, eternity and evanescence, rawness and yet sophistication that so often coexist within us at the same time creating something truly complex, unique and beautiful."
Paulina truly embodies what it means to be a "fine art" boudoir photographer. She has shown original fine art, and created images that are comparable to those statues among the model.
