Colette Saint Yves’ Eden

Colette Saint Yves is the nickname that the French artist Hortense Lagrange took as a tribute to the French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette after reading her book Sido. Colette Saint Yves was born in 1987 in France, and she works with collage, photography and video.

I’m really impressed by much of her art, but I want to show you a photography series of hers, which I find beautiful and intriguing. All the photos have been taken outside, in nature and the female person portrayed in them, is either partly or completely nude and you never see her face, which makes her seem fragile and mysterious. The title of the work is “L’éden” (the Eden), which must refer to the biblical story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. The only difference is that this time it is only a story about Eve. I hope you like it!
