"The Real World"

I photographed an old woman in the nude. She was a very special woman, and despite her age (more then 90 years) an enormous life-power radiated from her. For a long time she had lived abroad, she was a prostitute in France. Her nakedness is perceived as a necessity of life.
I want to picture the natural transformation of the human body caused by growing old. I perceive old age as the beauty of the autumn, which nobody can avoid. I catch the aged body in its natural beauty with its structures of wrinkles, and without any indication of pornography.

"A pietà"
This photograph is from cycle "Christian's love" where I don't want to show a human nudity as a sexuality, but men who are psychically and physically naked.
