Take some sexy shaped candles and photographs of naked women lounging around their houses and sprawling over the Crystal Palace dinosaur statues, and you’ve got yourself photographer Camille Vivier’s portfolio. Odd? Yes. Intriguing? Certainly. But I think that’s the point.
Parisian Camille, a graduate of Central Saint Martins, focuses on the female form in wax and in the flesh. Her tumblr is a mixture of coloured candles, black and white photographs of ancient monuments, and noir portraits of derobed ladies. These are no ordinary candles though, consisting of voluptuous goddess-like forms, a headless knight on horseback and a lady superhero spreading her cape and adopting the power stance. It’s a bit like you’ve stumbled across an online shrine to the beauty of the naked body; a collection of photographic votive offerings.
