Beauty, Nude and Portrait
Eric Kellerman is a Briton who has lived near Nijmegen in the Netherlands for just over half his life. In 2008, he
retired from academia to spend more time on photography. Specialising in the nude, he works almost entirely in the
studio with a regular team of female collaborators, many of whom have a serious interest in movement (dance, acrobatics, yoga, martial arts). Sometimes, when nobody is available, he photographs vegetables and fruit out of desperation.
Eric considers his work to be distant, abstract, melancholic, ‘unerotic’, despite its subject matter. He emphasises line, geometrical form, texture, implicit movement, and above all, chiaroscuro. He likes to create ambiguity in his photos, so that the viewer is sometimes unsure what part of the body is being looked at. In this way, he attempts to free the female body of its conventional associations.
His book 'The Box' was chosen as one of the European Photo Books of 2015 by The Federation of European Photographers. The book is published by Galerie Vevais in Germany.
