We may be familiar with the form of the human body, yet photographer
Peter van Stralen strips away our familiar reference points to create
his abstract nude photographs of professional dancers.
"They say that the design of an English garden
is only complete, if there are no more plants, bushes or trees that can be added to this garden. By contrast, a Zen garden is only finished, if there are no more plants, bushes or trees that can be left out of the design.
In this context, my photography can best be described as a Zen garden: I am a minimalist."
