UNTitled nUDE

Unique Vintage Gelatin Silver Print

Sanne Sannes remains one of the most captivating photographers of the 1960’s, having produced an outstanding body of work in the mere eight years he worked as a photographer, until his untimely death at the age of 30. His oeuvre is mostly built up of countless photographs of female nudes. Women were his favourite subject and an endless source of inspiration. In a nearly obsessive way, he photographed them during ecstatic sessions, often in the nude, recording their most intimate moments.

This intimacy ws emphasised in out-of-focus and underexposed photos; Sannes always worked with exciting light and hand-held camera. He wasn’t afraid to experiment with his work; he used close-ups, crops, scratched and painted on his negatives, exposed prints multiple times, the list goes on and on. In the end, it was the emotion and atmosphere that Sannes wanted to show with his work that was the most important to him.
