Sophie is one of my favorite photographers. She understands to bring movement into static images. Like Vicki Goldberg during her presentation of the exhibition catalogue said: “Delaporte sings a body electric: current and quick, seldom static, hardly shocking, charged with energy, and crackling with unpredictable incidents.
Seductive in an unlikely fashion, this series of capricious nudes cavorts across an uncommonly witty body of work…
At times the nude before us covers her face with a bunched-up dress while the parts of the body that are generally concealed remain on conspicuous display.
Though this might not be your idea of how to decide if a dress will attract a lover (but it certainly ought to work), it definitely looks like a good time. I’d say it all looks like a good time –for the model, for those wayward clothes, and no doubt for the photographer. Me too.”
