Elsa - Miami
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.
In this print, Elsa embodies the height of nonchalance and glamour. Elsa exists here in a state halfway between beach and city as she smokes topless, humidity hanging in the air. In Miami, long summer days turn into even longer summer nights.
