Oftentimes, the women of Barely Legal and the like are fully made up, but we like our ladies a little more au naturel. Dave Nazs Candids exhibit at Perihelion Arts gives voyeurs a view of the models in between shoots, doing ordinary things such as signing releases and lounging around.
The L.A.-based photographer shot the images over a two-year span with a Leica film camera, sans flash, which gives the photos a grainy quality that adds to the bare-bones style of the models themselves. One such subject is porn superstar Sasha Grey, whose depiction shows her arriving to the set fully clothed.
The look you get when a model hasnt been around that long is different than the look youll get when theyve been around two or three years, says Naz. I kind of like it when theyre not quite as confident in themselves, because theres a vulnerability that shows.
