Polish photographer Waclaw Wantuch’s Platinum series is an example of photographic precision. Wantuch has been dedicated to female nude photography for over 15 years. His very contrast-rich, black and white images, are defined by geometric and abstract forms; they are easily recognisable and have made him one of the best known Polish nude photographers.

For this project, Wantuch changed technical direction by completely dispensing with the use of artificial lighting. The pictures were taken in his studio, which has a glass ceiling, so only natural light was used.

“At some point I’d had enough of artificial light. After years of working in the studio, I knew exactly how the body behaves in that light. In contrast, daylight reveals all kinds of surprises. At the time I didn’t give any thought to the changeability of daylight, to the direction or placement of the sun, the effects of clouds or mist. Nowadays it all has an influence on my pictures, and that’s something I really like; because every day when I get up I don’t know what to expect when I get to the studio, what tools will be available to me.”
