Ave Pildas is a photographer with a distinctive aesthetic and a unique look. Having started his career in the 60s, as a photo stringer for Downbeat Magazine, Pildas is considered a successful photographer, famous for his 1970s Hollywood Boulevard photographs.

In the series of works featured below, we witness a more raw, sensual exploration of the human body, with Pildas playing with dots and lines, while his models pose in front of unusual backgrounds. These nudes become the perfect example of a sexually free era -or of one hoping to gain its freedom, while their style and vibe make them stand out as timeless archetypes of beauty.
