PETALS THE BOOK
Petals is a book of vulvas, their exquisite beauty and wondrous variety. The photography unfolding here is a candid presentation of the most essential part of the female anatomy, an unyielding mystery shrouded in cultural taboos. The subtle black and white photographs, accented by light and shadow, display the delicate shapes and textures of female genitals, inspiring a profound sense of wonder and awe.
Photographer Nick Karras has brought a refined, aesthetic sensibility to the forty-eight black & white photographs of the most sacred part of a woman's body. The female form has been forever the subject of the visual arts of sculpture and painting. Photography brings to it the challenge of realism. Karras achieves an exquisite balance between an expression of art and the natural delicacy of a woman's vulva.
