Elsa - Pool
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.
It's never a bad time for a swim in the world Aroch has created in the series. Illuminated from within, Elsa glimmers like the water around her. Soaked but elegant as ever, she's a modern-day mermaid if we've ever seen one.
