Sophie Delaporte Bares All For New Exhibition, ‘Nudes’

+

Given her background as a frequent contributor to fashion magazines such i-D and various international editions of Vogue,  Sophie Delaporte ’s photography exhibition, Nudes, is shockingly devoid of, well, fashion. But the show, which is currently on display through November 5 at New York’s Sous Les Etoiles Gallery, is far from gratuitous. The Parisian photographer enlisted help from her muse, model Masha Yakovenko, whose every picture exudes confidence, poise—and, as the show’s title suggests, plenty of skin.

But Sophie Delaporte doesn’t entirely abandon clothing; instead she reimagines it through paper, sheets, and other props—all of which are brought to their fullest kinetic potential through Yakovenko, whose movements begin to resemble a fluid dance rather than static poses.
