A really touching sensuousness comes from Jo Minaxe’s black and white photographs: the full curves of those women, the gorgeous shapely legs in a light with such a softness in it, of such a rare delicacy, the exchange of glances and caresses, the ballet of bodies and kisses – waited for, exchanged, shared –, each detail is staged and choreographed with care to reveal its magic intangible essence which leaves a sigh on our lips and a feeling of lightness in our souls.
Chicago, Illinois, United States
Very suggestive postures taken out of their context, bodies posing (or put?) on a colored background of which the dividing line between the floor and the wall is the only landmark in space, transfixed dance poses, missing the grace of movement in that upsetting motionlessness (how come? why?). Maybe this is about those eyes: so unbelievably blank and detached that we catch ourselves looking for an emotion on those faces of such an examplary neutrality.
Lausanne, Vaud, SwitzerlandYou have visited this site? Be the first one to tell us what you think about it!
The good deal given to the skin, tenuous border between surface and texture, painted and made unfamiliar, covered with crackling dried clay or thumbtacks, bark and rampart only asking to get through its coat to reveal itself at last, delicate under the caressing shafts of a soft silky light.
Vienna, AustriaYou have visited this site? Be the first one to tell us what you think about it!
An oriental harem where light shows its irisation as if seen through the surface of delicious golden waters, where the women, sometimes lascivious, sometimes languorous, show their charms without thinking, with something of a restraint decency, series in black and white playing on the opposition of shapes and the sense of touch, the velvet-like skin and the cactus thorn, the wicker corset looking like barbwire to illustrate the erotic daydreamings of a gardener.
A window opened during nap time, the sun rousing the languor and sensuousness of the bodies, an encounter under the sign of the orb, musical and bewitching, full of all the emotion of the unutterable wait; superimpositions in black and white, nature in its altar, legends taking life; the texture of the stone to give some material to the sentimental erosion that will tarnish sooner or later the primeval glamour to replace it by a lasting patina.
Neiva, Huila, Colombia
The late night photo sessions are the ones which show deeper that humanity flirting with glazed paper without revealing itself. The tiredness of a full day’s work under the spotlights can be read in the dark rings under the eyes and the unmaking of the make-up. The ambiance is drawn to the let go attitude, the light madness driving to all excentricities to break down the shackles of the poses after poses routine.

Studio portraits of a great delicacy and studio nudes playing with the reflections of the light on the skin to highlight the poses and curves, the energy and the sensuality, and an undeniable grace.
Nyon, Vaud, SwitzerlandYou have visited this site? Be the first one to tell us what you think about it!
Back studies where the magic curves show off, and the nape turns sometimes to let the profile unveil with grace, a very soft black and white for portraits at the same time very natural and very polished, series in studio to capture a look, a smile, an attitude.
Hamme-Mille, Walloon Brabant, BelgiumYou have visited this site? Be the first one to tell us what you think about it!
A world made of disused bunkers, of brick walls and naked industrial cold concrete, in which live strange women, like coming out of Metropolis, timeless and a bit dangerous, glamour and mysterious, in an aesthetics reminding the orientalism of the beginning of the century, transposed in the Ford factories with a theatrical hint of grandiloquence.

Personal series where the body overflows fashion coercive limitations in soft tender colors, the too-tight clothes symbolized by straps and ribbons, and the pain linked to it by tailor needles, fashion series where the skin is smoothed out, rendered velvet- or plastic-like in an aesthetics of purity and sweetness, acting as a casket for creators’ jewellery, as a screen on which lacework is projected in delicate shades.
