With NUDES René Groebli gives us a work for sensuous pleasure that had grown over half a century. In the long history of sensual art photography one is hard pressed to find anyone comparable to the Swiss photo artist. His images appear timeless and still exhibit a technical perfection and expression of joy in experimentation that one usually ascribes to the avant-garde.
Sometimes Groebli's work seems more akin to painting or at least to a pictorial kind of photography. In place of blurring brush strokes or filters he uses the grain of the film itself for the visual distortion of his photographs.
