David Lynch is known for exploring nudity in mysterious yet genius perspectives – from Isabella Rossellini standing naked in a front yard in Blue Velvet (1986), to the erotic scenes between Naomi Watts and Laura Harring in Mulholland Drive; and cites Francis Bacon as one of his biggest inspirations.

Most recently, is Nudes, a photographic publication that Lynch released last month at Paris Photo – an intriguing photographic yet social study of the nude female form.

“I like to photograph naked women. The infinite variety of the human body is fascinating: it is amazing and magic to see how different women are.” Lynch explains.

Fondation Cartier, where Lynch had a solo show years back in 2007, published the new book featuring more than 100 black and white and colour images of female-only nudes, all captured by Lynch himself. Described as being “close to abstraction (and) offering kaleidoscopic visions of the woman.” The press release adds, “They attest to David Lynch’s fascination with the infinite variety of the human body, while being in line with his cinematographic work.”
