Landscape art nude

A single figure is centered in the frame of this landscape art nude photograph. The setting is an expansive desert of white sand dunes. It is late in the morning and sun illuminates her bright skin and hair.

Her blue eyes look out towards an unseen horizon behind us. She has an expression of concentration but her thoughts are a mystery.

Her body is contorted, with her chest to the ground and her head turned to be visible. Her hips and feet are raised high and she puts weight on her knees. With her arms tucked under her collar bone she seems to inch across the desert sand.

Sand clings to the backs of her arm and her dorsal side, evidence of prior maneuvers through the terrain. These particles of white gypsum sticking to her skin create a pattern that helps to visually relate her body to her environment,

The lower portion of the image is featureless sand, topped by the crawling figure. Behind her is her trail of indentations through the sand. The horizon is defined by darker tones in the form of grey-blue hills. These tall dunes appear at various distances, illustrating the vastness of the desert. A wedge of dark blue caps the image at the top. The sky fades to a hazy cool off-white where it meets the horizon.

Although the main subject’s body is mostly concealed, her pose in this landscape art nude is clearly sensual in nature. Her muscles are tense and on display. Her waist appears narrow at this angle and the curves through her torso and legs are evident. Additionally, her chest presses into the sand in a tactile way.
