THE OPÉRA

Volume V

THE OPÉRA is a photo book published each year about the most direct form of portraiture: nude photography. In large and small stagings, the editor, Matthias Straub, is now presenting a brilliant range of nude photographs and hence the human body as a stage and spectacle for the fifth time. Just as the dramaturgy of a classical opera, according to Gustav Freytag (1816 – 1895), concludes with five acts, THE OPÉRA is also coming to an end for the time being with its fifth edition, which is defined by a deliberate arc of tension from Volume I to V. The metaphorical finale is characterized by strong artistic means of expression — from extremely sensitive and delicate positions to quite abstract and experimental nude photography.
