Adeline Mai, a photographer born and raised in Paris, France, has created a series of intimate imagery that capture the poetic nature of human interaction. Be it sensual or simply close, there is something incredibly honest about these otherwise carefully directed poses. The abstract nature of Adeline Mai's images allow people to find their own meaning -- making them approachable even in their artistic nature.

Picking titles as lyrical as the images themselves, Adeline Mai creates a strong sense of emotion for specific moments such as I Embraced the Summer Dawn and Dirty Weekend. Beautiful Decay writes, "Mai not only captures a playful kind of nakedness, but a shared closeness between clothed subjects as well. She is a master at capturing tender moments between her subjects and laying them out for all to see."
