Hadid Gallery is pleased to present the new photographic works of ANTIONE VERGLAS in his fine art photography exhibition: NATURE: EXPOSED.

 

NATURE: EXPOSED speaks to the seamless ties between the natural body and the elements of the natural world. It’s a raw and beautiful look at both as one in the same. The photographs, detailed and viscerally beautiful, are as striking in their message as they are to the naked eye.

 

“I am always inspired by nature and its elements water, sand, sun, trees, rocks.. I like to portray beauty and women in a very natural way, so it seems obvious to me to associate the woman’s body and its beauty to nature.”
