Lost by Yves Noir

Yves Noir centers his photographic work on depicting the human being in his original state. Against this background, his nude portraits are particularly not intended to present erotic moments, but rather to convey the natural aesthetics of the body. Those quiet pictures invite the viewer to linger. The view shall bring out the experience of an originally human exposedness and vulnerability. From this identificatory confrontation, it will open individual or social points of interpretation in the process.

The pictures are created in collaboration with artists and open-minded “everyday” people.

„Lost is not merely a space, but also a condition. Inner loneliness. The forsakenness that summons those last sparks of strength to rise. At the lowest depth lies the old beginning, waiting like a mantle for days filled with doubts. Testing whether skin and muscle remain, whether the body can still play along. Ironing out uncertainties in one’s head. Concentration. Collecting the rhythm of days and nights.“

“Lost is not merely a space, but also a condition.”
