Belgian photographer Marc Lagrange has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most original and talented nude photographers around. Taking a distinctive approach to setting voluptuous scenes, the Antwerp-based photographer meticulously composes timeless settings — with each location and prop carefully chosen to enhance the romantic and revealing mood. Building trust and chemistry with his models, Lagrange is daring but never crosses into mere titillation.
The tension is palpable and a sense of mystery pervades each elaborate vignette. Combining the glamour of classic Hollywood with the sensibility of an Old Master painting, all his alluring heroines seem at ease and approachable — yet just tantalizingly out of reach.
