(Art) The feral femininity of Charlotte Grimm [NSFW]

Charlotte Grimm (@espiritconfus on Instagram) is an art therapy student and fairy tale-esque photographer based out of Leipzig, Germany whose dark fantasy-inspired works explore, or perhaps expose, a sexually potent yet unapologetically self-assured femininity.

But despite the nudity, these are not erotic works. Grimm’s subjects are not handing themselves to the gaze of the viewer. They are exposed — often naked and always out of doors, for example — and sometimes vulnerable, but they remain untamed and are not asking to be admired by the viewer.

In the first image below, for example, the model is young and beautiful of course, and her face is dripping and her hair is messy. It seems as if she were just dancing a naked moon rite alone in a field, and we caught her, and she cares not.

I should also mention that, whether coincidence or intention, a different Charlotte Grimm — Charlotte Amalie Grimm (1793-1833) — was the sister of the Brothers Grimm.
