Olya Oleinic is a Moldavian photographer based in Amsterdam. In her work she combines art, fashion and photography, exploring the nude figure and focusing on details of body movements. In the series featured here Oleinic discusses the existence of the female body as a vessel of cultural customs. Her model embraces the power of her nude body, while her body art and accessories resemble traditional African attires.

“As an artist, I like to think that photography is a form of painting, requiring imagination, patience and skill. My visual language is aesthetic and very concise while my subjects are rather questions than answers. I enjoy exploring the grey area between two extremes, my interest often lies in creating a comparison of characters and objects, their dimensionality; manipulating the context and investigating the relationship of contradictory subjects. With lots of attention to composition, colours and details I develop a complete and accurate final result. My passion lies in creating still life images and staged portraiture. I am interested in the contemporary means of visual communication, which is why my work is often a blend of several mediums, combined to compliment each other in a subtle way,” she explains on her saatchi art page.
