‘Women with courage, energy, and they all had something that struck a chord in my soul.’
Exclusive to London 3939shop - photographer Mari Sarai’s framed prints, hand signed by the artist. Each print comes from or is inspired by her recent book of female nudes. The intimate connection that Mari was able to create with the subjects enabled her to shoot the women at ease. resulting in beautiful images that are raw, powerful, and free.
‘The title, ‘NAKED’, has a meaning of nudity in English. At the same time it has the meaning of unfolding the innerself. Although this is the very first time in my life for me to photograph nude women, I have always focused on shooting this innerself of the model, even when I shoot fashion stories and portraits. So I bring this same attitude to the nude project with my own personal style, to be spontaneous, to catch the moment.’ - Mari Sarai 2010These are only limited edition of 9 framed and hand-signed by Mari Sarai.
