The unabashed nudity and fetishist themes would seem to draw clear reference to the likes of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin; though it’s the latter that more springs to mind when viewing Peter Coulson‘s hotel-based shoot. Like the mysterious, often surrealistic narratives that went into Bourdin’s works, Coulson delivers something that sits a little uneasy with the viewer. The room is sparse, the poses are unnatural, and inanimate objects somehow play a role. Half of the shots are brightly lit; in the other half, the room is shadowy and dark. Perhaps, in this world, it’s only dark when you’re alone.
