Every photographer who embarks upon a black and white nude shoot does so with their own vision, leaving no two entirely alike. Alex Covo’s photo series featuring model Alianna Gilbert is distinguished in part by the comfortable mundaneness of the settings: there’s something just so beautiful in the homeliness of a kitchen shot, where Gilbert sits topless, hair casually flicked over, a closed macbook in front of her and a cat lapping up milk underneath some busy shelves in the background. Never is Gilbert really engaging with or looking directly at the camera. This is the kind of soft nakedness found in the comfort of home, and we just happen to be privy to it. Click the thumbnails for full pictures: When she’s not wholly naked, Gilbert is adorned in spectacular, intricately-beaded accessories by Julia Clancey. Belts, masks, a bib-like harness piece should by right feel out of place with the bare feet and furry throw rugs, but they don’t. They simply add to the beauty of it all.
