Elsa - Church Street Boxing
by Guy Aroch
Digital archival print
With his documentary-style photographs, New York-based photographer Guy Aroch creates quietly provocative images. In his series, Elsa, which was displayed at Milk Gallery in August 2012, Aroch made Swedish model Elsa Hosk his muse in a series that combined wanderlust, sensuality, and New York City grit. Intimate, saturated, and seductive, these images showcase Hosk’s irresistible beauty and Aroch’s masterful eye.
Elsa's look may be innocent, but her attitude is devil-may-care. As she smokes a cigarette curbside in New York City, we get the sense that she's doing great things but is up to no good. Her gaze is an invitation, and we want to come with.
