These breathtaking black-and-white photographs of Marloes Horst by Terry Richardson are proof that sometimes less really is more. The Dutch model strips down for the portraits, baring all her freckles and bruises for the camera quite elegantly. The photo of Horst from behind, showing just her back, is one of my favorite Richardson captures in a long time, which is really saying something, as I'm a huge fan of his work. The simplicity and natural beauty of the monochromatic shot are incredibly captivating.
The photos of Marloes Horst by Terry Richardson were taken in the photographer's NYC studio, and posted to his photoblog TerrysDiary.com, where he posts his personal work and outtakes from celebrity photoshoots. It is always a delight to see new Richardson work, and this portrait series definitely does not disappoint.
