FALLEN

Nicola PETRARA

Publisher: Self-published

"Fallen is my very first publication. A book that was born from the strong wish to share my view on bodies in general and nudes. This is a personal exploration, influenced by photographers that I think highly of, such as Antoine D'Agata, Araki, Helmut Newton, Ren Hang, to name a few.

The confrontation with nudity is always embarassing, as it’s never really clear what nudes represent to each of us.
With Fallen I would like to show the body as it is, without hiding it, without making it more beautiful, nor more pleasant. It’s a slight provocation that leaves the audience hanging in the balance, only to be left in their own imagination."
