RASMUS MOGENSEN / Perfectly Natural

These murals are part-real and part-fantasy created by the photographer, in which he has produced overtly idealized female bodies. Mogensen's female figures are partially made in the spirit of Italian comic book artist Milo Manara. Depicting blatantly sexualized women in strong female roles is a consistent theme in Manara's erotic graphic novels.

Mogensen has initially photographed his models from a shifted perspective, aiming his camera from low, up at the women, in turn giving them an undeniable sense of strength and power. He then further fashioned his strong females by digitally manipulating their forms. One of his objectives is to deliberately reflect the surreal or unnatural physical ideals of our contemporary era by incorporating the use of image manipulation. The viewer is confronted with these "ideal" women who look "perfectly natural" but in reality are strangely too perfect.

Mogensen's comments on his view in creating perfection using images "Photography is for me a search for harmonious shape and composition. What keeps me going is the fact that a creative career is a never-ending evolution in the search for a perfection that does not exist. I love the fact that there is always something you can become better at in the process."

Rasmus Mogensen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1974. He began his photography career working as a photo assistant both in Copenhagen and New York. His first independent exhibition, at age 17, was at the Gallery Photografica in Copenhagen.



RASMUS MOGENSEN / PERFECTLY NATURAL

Les photographies de cette série sont entre le réel et le fantastique, la volonté du photographe étant de créer des femmes au corps irréel. Les figures féminines de Rasmus Mogensen sont en partie réalisées dans l’esprit des comics books de l’Italien Milo Manara.
Il exprime la sexualité féminine flagrante de femmes fortes restant ainsi dans le thème des histoires érotiques de Manara.

Rasmus Mogensen photographie ses models sous des angles changeants dans lesquels il produit ouvertement des corps de femme idéalisés. Il pointe son objectif sous divers angles donnant au sujet une force indéniable.Il leur attribut davantage de force en re manipulant leurs corps par la suite. L’une de ses préoccupations majeure est de mettre délibéremment en avant l’irréel de l’idéal physique de nos imaginaires Contemporains. Le spectateur est confronté à l’idée de la femme «idéale» paraissant «Parfaitement Naturelle» mais en réalité étrangement trop parfaite.

«la photographie est pour moi la recherche de l’harmonie des formes et de la composition.
Ce qui me fait avancer c’est qu’une carrière créative est toujours en évolution et à la recherche d’une forme de perfection. J’aime le fait qu’il y ait toujours quelque chose à rendre meilleur».
