The Beholder's Eye.
Photography by Carla van de Puttelaar.
Carla van de Puttelaar, Amsterdam, 2008. 72 pp., 34 color illustrations, 13½x9½".
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.
