Tahalia, Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia.
“I’ve been shooting the female body for the fashion industry for the past 17 years and decided it was time to present what I see as the elemental quality of women,” Paul said. “There’s a freedom and a confidence about Australian woman that I wanted to capture and where better to juxtapose this than against the stark beauty of our natural wonders. I also see this series as an antidote to the way tasteless nudity is being consumed by our society in 2012. These woman are not being sexy for men, they’re not titillating, they’re not ashamed or shy of their bodies. They are gentle, soft and elegant.
"I hope people will be inspired by these sensuous images that reflect my aw of the female form and its natural wonder.
