An artistic celebration of the nude female form, from one of the top photographers in Scandinavia
Steen Evald’s first solo book
The nude body is timeless. When removed from the historical context of clothes or surroundings, it becomes an eternal, abstract expression of humanity. In this series, Memory of Light, Steen Evald’s photography transforms the body into sculptural shapes, exploring the interplay of light, shadow and skin. The penetrating brilliance of white light is at once harsh and purifying, revealing the core principle behind Evald’s work: the evocative simplicity of the human form.
There are no disturbing elements, no superfluous effects, no staging. Only this: the women, the light and the darkness. Through Memory of Light, Evald explores photography as an art form and the body as a canvas.
