Photographer Matt Quérée and artist Andrew J. Steel
After two years of shooting, painting, travelling around New Zealand and meeting some incredibly open-minded and brave women, it is with great pleasure that we present to you Body Landscape.
BodyLandscape is an exploration of land & body – the two rawest and most eloquent forms of nature. We body painted and photographed 27 remarkable New Zealand women in 27 remarkable New Zealand landscapes, seamlessly blending them into their environments.
Our work aspires to showcase both the natural beauty of our country and its women. We wanted to encourage the volunteers, who participated through the most intimate form of self-expression, the nude body, to tell the story of the landscape they individually live in.
New Zealand has pioneered women’s rights for over a century with strong courageous women at the helm. BodyLandscape both recognises this history and celebrates the everyday New Zealand woman hidden amongst us, empowering the 21st century female.
BodyLandscape marks our first collaborative project of this kind. It combines our two skill sets of painting and photography to create something unique and extraordinary where body and land merge as one.
