Photographer Michel Nafziger envisions the female nude as a revelation. A revelation of the form and of raw emotion, momentary and spontaneous, yet captured cautiously through prolonged exposure.

Nafziger’s first solo show in New York, featuring large-scale prints and an edition of portfolios, is a masterful revelation of his unique sensibility, at once strikingly classical and modern.
