IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES. YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU LIKE SOMETHING, IT WILL STOP AT SOME POINT. ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END. AND SO WHAT DO YOU DO? YOU ENJOY. UNTIL THE LAST MOMENT.
We introduced you to Sylvain Norget’s work for the first time in March 2009 when we published his Naked Rabbit Project. Fascinated by the creative talent of this photographer from Bordeaux, France, we soon realized his work was like a magnet for us. We kept going back there. Sylvain is a man of many talents, and being a photographer is but one of them. As we mentioned in earlier article, Sylvain actually started his career being a dancer and a model. Two careers that not necessarily shut one and another out. And having all that experience of being in the spotlight, eventually drove him to pose for his own portraits after he decided to pick up the camera himself.
Sylvain Norget has been shooting many series of self portraits. His Naked Rabbit Project, in which he takes dramatic action against his own leporiphobia is one of the most known in this, but most certainly not the only set. Sylvain has showed sides of him that many wouldn’t dare to show, all in the most stylish and artistic sense. But self portraits is not all he has been doing over the years.
Recently Sylvain Norget was given the opportunity to shoot a series of photos in a soon to be opepend new cruising bar in Bordeaux. Thinking about a concept he boldly decided that this would be his last series of nude self portraits. A set of 12 photos (size 19,6x27,5 inches) that he will release as special limited editions, only printed 3 times, signed and numbered. The photos are extra ordinary, showing Sylvain in all his nakedness in what can almost be seen as a physical struggle to free himself. And by doing that he freed us. He freed us from that magnetic attraction his self portrait had on us for the past two years. But not to worry, because Sylvain Norget will keep shooting, including nudes, except his subjects will differ. We are convinced that now, released from his spell, we will discover a whole new Sylvain Norget. –BM-
Sylvain Norget’s The End, The Last Nudes are for sale as limited edition. The series will also be displayed ion a special exhibition in Bordeaux in February 2011.
