How something can be simultaneously so peaceful and so dramatic is a work of alchemy only Akiss Paraskevopoulos could understand. Engineering exactly that contradictory mix in his latest photoshoot starring Taryn Andreatta, Paraskevopoulos’ lens sees his undressed muse as a Grecian Goddess belong to the past, present and future; one who stands tall against the drama of the skies and relishes in the hushed, peaceful silences of the white stone walls. Click the thumbnails for full pictures: Andreatta throws both body and soul into her role with the confidence and conviction we’ve come to know and expect. Whether arching her completely naked body or overseeing her kingdom in a metallic silver dress – like a long-haired Athena poised for battle – she fits gracefully with her surroundings. Aptly titled Greece Rising this is one of those mixes of nudity and fashion that crosses into the realm of art.
