    Inspired by erotic imagery of the early 20th century, Eliane Excoffier
uses classical representations of sexual desire and eroticism to capture the
female nude in a series of black and white photographs taken with a Kiev 60, a
camera manufactured at the prime of the Soviet Union in the capital of
Ukraine. She creates her own paper negatives that are hand-cut to fit into the
back. When printed, the delicate surface of the paper subtly references the
past as the grain and imperfections of the hand made negatives are revealed.
The long exposure times required for this technique create ghostly images of
the female form as figures move within the frame. Excoffier offers the viewer
a modern take on the voyeuristic images attributed to the early 20th century.
