Carla van de Puttelaar: the beholder's eye

Carla van de Puttelaar; text by Bob Frommé

The intimate and delicate nude portraits of this Dutch photographer are characterised by an alienating sensuality. This new series of images, in which Van de Puttelaar depicts women in full length for the first time while retaining every breathtaking detail of their skin, draws its inspiration from the painters Cranach and Botticelli. The photography of Carla van de Puttelaar allows the eye to touch the skin on many different levels. In her nudes she wants to emphasize personality, vulnerability and intimate eroticism, as well as distance and, sometimes, alienation. Natural, northern light is one of Carla's most important tools and assets. She allows it to play around with her subjects and catches it at its most seductive moment, capturing it for posterity.
