Photography celebrating the female form | Artist Gallery
These compositions recall classic pinups as well as the longstanding theme of pairing female beauty with stylish automobiles. In advertising, editorial, and art nude photography, there has been an enduring visual pairing of a feminine form with cars. Dating back to the earliest years, women appeared in automobile advertisements.
Through the decades, the emphasis on showcasing women’s physiques in such images increased. In unique projects such as the Pirelli calendar, a tendency developed toward an unbridled admiration for both feminine curves and the lines of the automobile.
The genre has evolved, involving a more nuanced dialog. The bodies are presented as more than eye candy. Rocking punk looks and brimming with confidence, the women in Aaron Knight’s photographs make each scene their own.
