My most recent shoot for sieviete.
‘Sieviete’, meaning ‘The Female’ or ‘Woman’ in Latvian, is an exploration of the female form. Focusing on one of the more intimate areas of the body, Nicola creates a repetition of bottom portraits. Influenced by an old photograph of her grandma, taken by her late Latvian grandfather, she relives a childhood memory. Toying with the idea of the private image becoming public, she replicates a peep show, where she exhibits Sieviete.
With an element of fashion combined with a cheeky humour, Nicola captures her current generation and demonstrates an intimate relationship with her grandparents and her ability to make her models feel at ease.
Using seemingly objective poses and focusing on the bum, an often-sexualised body part, Nicola questions how objectivity of the female is being perceived.
