She hesitated to agree with publishing this image, but she did. Thank you Jane. It was a pleasure to work with you, and you expressed gratitude to what we achieved together. I’m glad I could bring you confidence.
Jane, my body is my temple …

Please enjoy Jane, posing in her catsuit.
rather difficult to make images of a good looking body in a catsuit not look ‘sleazy’ or ‘cheesy’ or whatever you might call it. (cheap looking soft erotic style)
I hope I managed in some way to prevent these images from looking that way. I’ll leave the judgement up to you.

Thank you for watching, thank you Jane, for being my patient model on this cold day, thank you to the owners of the house for granting me acces to this great playground.
Now that the days have turned dark and wet and cold, here in Belgium, time to look back at that great summer we had.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The damsel in distress or persecuted maiden is a classic theme in world literature, art, film and video games. She is usually a beautiful young woman placed in a dire predicament by a villain or monster and who requires a hero to achieve her rescue. After rescuing her, the hero often obtains her hand in marriage. She has become a stock character of fiction, particularly of melodrama. Though she is usually human, she can also be of any other species, including fictional or folkloric species; and even divine figures such as an angel, spirit, or deity.
I developed these images a bit ‘off style’ or at least off my style, like or not?

thank you for watching,
This image has an even more zen-look to it I think. The expression and the eyes closed make this image a witness to the models well being at that moment. Thank you Elisa, for being my model that day.
As I said yesterday, this image is taken at the exact same spot as the previous one. That is why I love working with available light, it gives you so much possibilities in a single space, …

I’m getting more and more visitors on my site, year after year for which I am thankful. It means my images appeal to at least a certain public. But I get less and less likes or comments on my images. Not that that really bothers me, but it made me think that we might not have made much process in accepting nudity in society, since R. Doisneau made this little secret setup capturing the public reactions to a painting depicting a nude woman in some art gallery’s vitrine.
“La femme indignée by R. Doisneau 1948”. There’s more images to be found on the internet. look for ‘le regard oblique’.
Dare to express the love for female beauty my friends. Nothing wrong with that 😉
while you are here reading, you might as well take a look at my galleries, some new images are added from time to time.
it is not really the season for cherry trees blossoming, but this is from earlier this year.
A giant cherry tree in early blossoming, of course mirrored to a beautiful woman.
A single image post, from the same shoot as Sirrus and some other images with Pauline. Thank you Pauline for your efforts and good mood.

I brought a mosquito net into my studio space. I installed it on the attic.
We fooled a bit around with the bright light that drops into this space when the sun is coming in. The shadow creates a second person in the space. I kinda liked how the shadow and the original interacted with each other.
