About this activity

Since the beginning of times, one of the most common ways of expression is nude art.
You can find it in every art period from paintings, sculpture to photography.
Although it has been around for years, it still remains taboo for most people.
In this session, the goal is to show the beauty of the human body and how to use light, shadow and subjective elements such as concepts to make your vision come to reality.

About your Mentor
Born in Brazil and now based in Helsinki, Finland, photographer Ricardo Santos has been developing hybrid photography for the past few years; shooting with film, developing and scanning the negatives for digital editing.

The first contact with photography came at a very early age, in 1984, when his dad taught him how to look through the view glass of a Rolleiflex. It wasn’t until Ricardo’s first son was born, that he made the decision of getting a new DSLR camera to record the family memories. After that photography became a serious hobby and it didn’t take long until he decided to explore film photography and the analog world.
