Original art nude photography

This original art nude photography draws inspiration from pinup and performance. The nude woman swimming is jubilant and defies convention. An expanse of clear water signifies luxury and freedom. She swims with abandon, unencumbered by gravity, free of judgement, disconnected from entanglements.

Her body twists just under the surface ripples. Her right side is submerged and her left side barely breaks the surface. One shoulder, a foot, and her face are above the water. Reflections and refractions of the ripples form patterns of criss-crossing light over her body. A slight blur at her raised foot conveys motion. Billows of water and tiny bubbles float on the water around the swimmer’s physique.

Jet black hair is slicked back from her forehead. The dense strands flow in wavy lines away from her face, framing her cheekbone. Her head is turned away from her direction of travel. She looks down her outstretched arm, eyelids almost shut. Her eyelashes are distinct against her cheeks. Her lips are parted and her expression is jovial.
