Mother Nature, by Erik Kessels

8 Mar 2015

The Photocaptionist wishes everybody a wonderful International Women’s Day with Mother Nature, by legendary Erik Kessels, curator and creative director of the agency KesselsKramer. The publication continues the series of artwork based on his photographic collection initiated with the glorious Album Beautya tribute to the flamboyant years of the photo album.

“In the analogue photography era – explains Kessels – men used to be the photographers mostly and, while taking pictures, they tended to place their wives or girlfriends in front of flowers, in nature. Sometimes women were even ‘planted’ in the middle of bushes.”

We are delighted to present here an excerpt of curator Francesca Seravalle‘s text on the connection between women and nature.

Mother Nature  is published by RVB Books and can be purchased here.
