The Aude photo series is full of raw images that are shrouded in mystery. While the model captured in each still is completely naked, there is nothing vulnerable about her presence in the large mansion she is seen to be exploring. A strange wanderer, she could be likened to a cat who is marking its territory throughout the space.

A collaborative project between photographer Jeremy Ayer and graphic designer Julien Mercier, the Aude photo series does have a deeper meaning. The masterminds behind it write, "With her pale skin, her slender body, she represents a certain ideology of beauty, as dictated by contemporary magazines. But paradoxically, the raw image remains in a direct visual language, not constrained by any commercial obligations."
