The model's pale skin stands out in stark contrast to the dark background in this photo series. In a series of poses, she is heavily involved with her own body, wrapping herself in her own embrace. Her nudity coupled with the natural scenery evokes ancient goddesses, although this is offset by the intense chiaroscuro and monochromatism, creating an almost foreboding atmosphere. In the final images, she gazes directly down the camera lens, providing a stimulating alternative to the passivity of other nudes; she seems aware of herself in a way that many other women pictured in art are not.
