Maria Eugênia Nabuco’s experimental approach brings out once again the aesthetic of the body withdrawn, enigmatic, but here she places her models in the corners of their homes, isolating them from all else. This isolation is accentuated by the surrounding emptiness, which is almost palpable and seems to envelop all human beings. The body is there, hair falls like a parachute, the body becomes an enigma.
These series, striving towards real life, are made up of simple elements, such as natural light, without manipulation or other artifice. The models are always people in their daily lives, people who are posing for the first time. The intention of the photographer is to reduce the body to the essential; to find the place from which the body can best express itself. Thus in this photographic work there is no purely aesthetic and formal vision of the nude.
