Veruschka, the beauty of all beauties





An artist working with camouflage and the power of the body. Veruschka uses body paint to transform her appearance so that it harmonises with her surrounding environment. I love the energy the photographs exude, some colourful and extravagant while others are more sedated and sculptural. Although it involves a lot of work the end results have a feeling of effortless and pure beauty without a sexual reference. I love the combination of vulnerability and strength in each image. The body is always the vulnerable side beside backgrounds such as rock and foliage even though the deception lies in the similar textures of both dimentions. I am searching for techniques within fabric, the body and imagery to express these two qualities, strength and vulnerability.
