Photographer Hugh Lippe captures images that are beautiful and ethereal while revealing the raw, natural beauty of his portrait subjects. These portraits show minimal makeup, tousled hair and relaxed, natural poses. Soft curves, natural expressions and stunning yet soft lighting add a poetic, painterly quality to these images.

Lippe’s portraits hint at something timeless and universal: a glimpse into subtle emotions where the women almost appear to be caught off-guard. The delicate posing of the models lends a poetic feel to these photos.
