Odalisque EroticaErotica // Wednesday, 24 Apr 2013
Nil Hoppenot shoots Olga Zbitkovskaja as "Odalisque," a mythical female slave or concubine from Ottoman lore. The model lounges in the dusky haze of the densely blanketed harem, and Hoppenot utilizes her photo skills to create an atmosphere reminiscent of renaissance paintings and storybooks. These photos literally make fairytales real, and the demure, come-hither looks of the model are deeply scintillating. Muted tones of maroon combine with the texture of gauze and carpets to create a faraway sense to these photo's sexuality.
