A Selé Fine Art Series by Fleur Panhuijzen
At Selé we aim to inspire and stay inspired during our creative journey restoring the art of sleep. For this reason, we launched the Selé Fine Art Series, manifesting unique work through collaborations with established and upcoming artists and other creatives. The recurring theme is the night and dreamworld, which proves to be an inexhaustible source of mystery and inspiration.
The location directly appealed to me, it has something magical. This tiny house, in the middle of the forest, is a serene place perfectly suited to unwind and disconnect from the daily buzz of the city. As soon as I arrived, it immediately felt like it was exactly what we needed to create shots with a dreamy style in a serene surroundings. I mainly lowered the brightness and added an analog feeling to the photos. The result is the photo series Unwritten Dreams.

My approach is not based on any accepted methods or techniques. The key to successfully capturing sophisticated photos of the naked body is my subtle feeling for aesthetics and of course my instinct to do this in the best way possible on the go. I capture the model in the way she has inspired it. For me, the art of photography is all about not preparing a shoot in detail, but fulfilling opportunities along the way during the shoot.
Nude photography has been a genre of fine art photography since the inception of the medium in the middle of the nineteenth century. The combination of nude and dreamy vibes were a perfect fit for me and resulted in photos that emphasize the female curves of the model’s body and captured the dreamy feeling in this beautiful serene surroundings.
