Philippe Kerlo Shoots Beauty Shots Through Plexiglass and Paint

Philippe Kerlo is a really creative beauty and fine art photographer based out of Paris France. Some people are dubbing his work as “extreme glamour” which might be a fitting title. Through each of his photographic adventures, Philippe Kerlo takes us on a journey inside the mystery of women…

… He seeks their unconscious in his series on psychoanalysis;

… He uncovers their wounds inspired by Gainsbourg’s words “bruises are the most beautiful jewels”;

… He shows their nude vulnerability in an art class setting.

Each of Philippe’s series tells a story of its own, whether it is the birth of a kiss, the fall of a medieval army, or the birth of an angel…

Philippe’s images shed light on his models whilst respecting the intimacy.

Elegance and sensuality are the essence of his photographic quest.

Below is a video of him shooting beauty portraits through plexiglass covered with paint, acrylic, and other colored materials. The results are really stunning and the idea is so simple I thought I had to share it with everyone.

Be sure to check out Philippe’s portfolio because his work has a lot of interesting angles like the photos shown here.
