Striking Photos of Dancers in the Wilderness by Bertil Nilsson

Bertil_Nilsson_Photography

London-based fine art photographer Bertil Nilsson returns to his rural Swedish roots in the ongoing series Naturally. Frequently featuring circus performers and dancers in his work, Nilsson’s newest exploration is the juxtaposition of man and nature, freeing both to run rampant in his unhindered landscapes. Collaborating with his models, Nilsson captures a mixture of contortions and levitation both posed and organic. The nude figures are dressed in intense colors that punctuate each frame, creating another possible layer of interpretational poetry. Set loose in this Eden, the photographer himself gives way to the chaos, each image exploding in an evolution of release.

Naturally is currently on view at Galerie Wilms through January 12th, 2014.
