In her portrait series, artist Victoria Selbach depicts seductive women posing nude in contemplative states of mind. While these images could have easily turned crass, the artist focuses on the sensuality of the female figure, playing up its beauty rather than its provocative nature.

Over top of the flesh-filled images, Selbach demonstrates her artistic talents by playing with light and shadow, letting her prone figures be covered by the light and darkness as it comes in through the bedroom window. While casting the women into anonymity, the shadows also serve to create intimacy between the portraits and the viewer.

The creative Victoria Selbach manages to portray the extreme femininity and sensuality of her nude figures while simultaneously creating drama and intensity through her use of shadow.
