On Robert CHOURAQUI work
Robert Chouraqui is a french self-made photographer who came to photography in the mid-70s in the psychedelic period by being involved in a leading Light-show group in Europe, and from that universe he derived his taste for strange atmospheres and his mastering of light and became the photographer of the strange fashion. None of his vamps photos leaves us indifferent. His MANGA PINUPS models seems to come out from a Comics and he captures them in pictures which go all around the world. His Nude-portraits style concentrates on the intimacy of the face rather than the anonymous body. These dressed-nudes affiliate him more to the fashion photographers than the nudes ones. Beautiful amazons stare at his camera like if a part of their mind was being stolen and they let themselves be photographed in a mixture of challenge and surrender. Robert Chouraqui's work has been published in many a magazine around the world and has been edited in ten art books now sold out and collectors items. Through archival or Lith printing and polaroïd transfers or photoshop wizardry, his techniques all aim at highlighting the living presence of these women in a magic and nearly disrupting way.His personal site is showing more his stange fashion photography www.robertchouraqui.com where his nude photography sets will only be on MAIDofNUDE. Robert is always looking for new faces: so fatal woman, fierce goth-girl, aristocratic princess, cyber-vamp, or tattooed pinup, contact him wherever you are !
