Published by teNeues Media, German photographer Vincent Peters’ most recent photo book, Selected Works, is an ode to sensory pleasures. Captured in black and white with a majority of female subjects, the book revels in the appeal and sexuality of enigmatically emblematic celebrities framed in a moody and mysterious light.
Heavily featured throughout the book are celebrities such as Emma Watson, Charlize Theron, Laetitia Casta, Monica Bellucci, Scarlett Johansson, Courtney Love, Adriana Lima, and many more of the greats. As a creative grandmaster, Vincent Peters has the keen ability to portray each of his subjects with an air of heavy-laden sensuality, sex appeal, and unequivocal grace. The steamy black and white images are both classicly timeless and erotically intimate.
Upon Selected Works’ first page, a quote from Peter reads, “In photography, you are always searching, selecting, and taking away. If you make these decisions, then photography is always a journey of self-discovery. Sharing my work with others is a conversation. It’s not about the words you exchange, it’s the feeling you walk away with. The unconscious meets the conscious in the act of photography.”
