Arnold Frolics is a Toronto based photographer who uses nudes, skewed perspectives, floods of light in darkness and subjects who often appear withdrawn and almost defeated to create lonely but magical and dizzying environments. His photos are imperfect but beautiful and haunting. If you ask him about his work and inspiration he’ll gush about how important his friends and the people around him are, and that they continually inspire him to do more. It’s comments like that that speak to just how fresh Arnold is to his craft. His freshness, which is often a detriment to most artists, is used to his advantage.

There isn't much information out there on photographer Arnold Frolics, and his evocative nudes impart a similar air of mystery. Solitary figures bare all on deserted playground structures and other backdrops in shots that are eerily spotlit à la David Lynch, while angles are often skewed to make for some gravity-defying compositions. Equal parts surreal and sensual.
