A LARGE FORMAT NUDE PUBLICATION ON NEWSPRINT PAPER BY PHOTOGRAPHY DUO ARTURO BAMBOO
One year after launching their first book ‘Summer Diary’ Arthur Groeneveld and Bamboo van Kampen – Arturo Bamboo – present their second publication: ‘Privé’: a large format, black and white nude zine. Privé is more revealing than their first book, showing sensual, vulnerable and even more intimate views which enable the viewer to dive deeper into their relationship.
“What sets this series of images apart is the fact we’re together and both function as photographer as well as subject – in this way every shot has a very personal view from either Arthur’s or Bamboo’s perspective. Also the fact that nude imagery in general does not bother about fashion, time and place stimulated us to create a timeless piece. The photos are untouched and show everything reality offers: imperfections, light, pleasure, tension, lack of focus and darkness.
Some images are quite abstract and really require a second look: it’s not clear if the subject is male or female, or even which body part is documented – it feels like a discovery. In other images it is easier to relate to the situation and the story we want to tell.
The large newspaper format was for us the ideal size to display the beauty and sensuality of the human form while the visible imperfections of the black and white films in combination with the raw, fading character of the newsprint paper gives a certain depth, tactility and rhythm.“
