Where land meets body: How artist Andrew Steel and photographer Matt Quérée’s new series celebrates New Zealand women

Artist Andrew Steel and photographer Matt Quérée have come together to create a photography series called BodyLandscape, which features 20 women in the nude painted to merge with the landscape behind them. But there’s more to this series than meets the eye: It was a showcase of diversity of ethnicities and body shapes, while for others, it was a way of claiming their body back after a traumatic experience. Here, the pair talk how the concept came to life.
