    Zoe Ghertner: Bodies

Championing womankind – the rare creatures of Zoe Ghertner

Posted by Liv Siddall,

You could argue that half the work of a photographer is already done when the subject matter is so beautiful, but something about the photographs of Zoe Ghertner – whose subjects are exclusively female or still life – seem to turn these models into creatures. As well as an absolute money shot of an anonymous babe applying perfume, Zoe likes to sit her intelligent-looking ladies in spots where the sun casts shadows over their bodies and highlights their intimidating cheekbones. Also, being a very talented still-life photographer as well, Zoe has a knack of being able to make these models appear almost object-like, which is an art in itself.
