BEAUTY: Photography--Arno Rafael Minkkinen

Fine art photographer Arno Rafael Minkkinen photographs himself in nature. I love how he disguises his hands and feet and body to blend in with the surroundings. He has been photographing his nude body in pristine natural settings all around the globe for forty years.

His work reminds me so much of some photos a friend of mine took of me in the 80s (the three photos seen below). We went to a local mountainous area at sunset and he captured my hands, arms, and body among the rocks, branches, and hills.
