David Lynch has always been fascinated by the human body and its myriad forms — from the physical perfection embodied by Dorothy Vallens in Blue Velvet to the extreme disfigurement of John Merrick, whose congenital disorder and the cruelties it yielded, formed the subject of his Oscar-winner The Elephant Man. Now, a new photo book — released in collaboration with the Fondation Cartier in Paris, the museum that hosted his retrospective of photography and painting The Air is on Fire — offers a Lynchian perspective on the female nude, courtesy of over a hundred black-and-white and colour images captured by the artist. And, as one might expect, they are a masterclass in mystery and eroticism.

I'm fascinated by women. Fascinated by their strength, insecurity, energy, femininity, spirituality, drive and of course anatomy and I do my very best to photograph women like I see them. Nude women that is.
Indeed, the photographic depiction of the human body is the only subject that has enthralled photographers, theoreticians and consumers over such a long period — more than years. No other motif is as prevalent as this one during all the phases of development comprising the history of photography, no other is present, whatever the technique, and is a subject of discussion within the context of nearly all aesthetic movements. Nor has any other pictorial topic produced such a variety of specialities as the nude: from the ethnological interpretation of the body to the glamour shot, from nudist photography to the pin-up of today.

Fine art nude photography is a genre of fine-art photography which depicts the nude human body with an emphasis on form, compositionemotional content, and other aesthetic qualities. The nude has been a prominent subject of photography since its invention, and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. The distinction between fine art photography and other subgenres is not absolute, but there are certain defining characteristics. Erotic interest, although often present, is secondary,  which distinguishes art photography from both glamour photographywhich focuses on showing the subject of the photograph in the most attractive way, and pornographic photographywhich has the primary purpose of sexually arousing the viewer.
