Elodie - The sensual lover πŸ“Έ ❣️ πŸ”ž

Elodie+Nicolas
 

We love how Elodie - a still life photographer and model, and Nicolas - also a photographer, are working together to show a women’s form embracing their surroundings. They use nature and light to find the perfect balance of erotism and romanticism.
We asked Elodie fews question about her role as a nude model. This was her response.

From being a photographer, how did you become the model, the muse? 

In fact I started photography by being my own model. Later, when I finished uni, I started to work with still life. But my first love was the nude. It’s very interesting, the ability to tell stories in one image.

When we met with Nicolas we did not live in the same city, our epistolary 2.0 exchanges often contained images from Tumblr that we liked. We shared an aesthetic of the nude, sublimated body, erotic and poetic. When we ended up living together we decided to make our own images.

When using accessories like leather bondage, how do you avoid people seeing this only from a sexual perspective?

Even if the body is naked it is not presented as a sexual object. We do not try to shock or excite, the keywords are β€œbeauty” and β€œdream”. After all, we do not "control" the thoughts of people and how they can perceive our images but we try above all to release sensuality rather than sexuality.

Where do you get the inspiration for your poses? Who does the editing of the shoots?

I've always been fascinated by the perfection and the control of dancer’s bodies. With my own capacity I try to copy those poses. In pain body’s tell interesting things and can be read as beauty in the photo. Even if I check the result on the camera once or twice, I prefer to let Nicolas be the guide as he is the one behind the camera. This lets me focus more on the performance. Harmony of the gesture with the environment is the key to the best result.

Do you think you could pose in the same situation with a different photographer?

I used to be a model for some other photographers, but the only one I’m 100% comfortable with is Nicolas. This is probably because we love each other and front of him I can unveil and show my soul without shame. When I see the picture, I can feel the love. I’m not β€œworking” for him like a model & a photographer; me and him are working together.

What was so far, the worst location and/or situation you experienced, as a model?

The worst was a shoot in icy water on the river β€œLe Rhone” - France in December. I was freezing.

What has so far been your favourite shoot?

Difficult to tell. I can get tired quickly and I have always very high expectations. But there are some images I’m always proud to look at and where I can say β€œwow, we made that !”.
