Artist and photographer, Anastasia Mastrakouli’s ‘naked silhouette alphabet’ has made the fifth year undergraduate student a clear emerging talent to watch in the art world. Her images of the human body pushed up against the steamy glass of a shower are ethereal in their simplicity, demonstrating the natural beauty and flexibility of the human body. Some of the poses the model adopts are quite extraordinary alone and whilst we are given the occasional glimpse of , excuse my language, an anus, the model’s bareness becomes almost irrelevant as the body, freed from all other distractions, becomes an abstracted imprint of a letter. If this is what Mastrakouli can produce at art school, who knows what will happen when she steps out into the big wide world.
