Beijing-born, Tasmania-based nude photographer Norah Wenrui Wu‘s incredible talent is matched only by her lush, dreamy aesthetic – and lucky us that she chose to share it with our community! (Psst… You know you can do the same via our Contributor page, right? Great!)

Her latest collection is entitled ‘tender’, a name she tells us is taken from Sylvia Plath’s iconic novel, “The Bell Jar”.

“The name ‘tender’ comes from Sylvia Plath’s novel ‘The Bell Jar’, from a conversation between Dr. Nolan and Esther:

‘What does a woman see in a woman that a man cannot see?’ 
-‘Tenderness.’  

These works not only document the beauty of each person’s body, captured in a way that only a woman can – but also represent the special trust between us.”

We love this beautiful nuance, especially knowing how the subjects in Norah’s photographs are most often friends or friends, who she hadn’t met prior to their session. What a lovely testimony to the special connection we as women can form when that trust is established – and what amazing results it can produce!

“Female sexuality has always been my main inspiration and female nudity is also a sacred topic for me,” Norah says. “The body of a female is the origin of humankind, containing life and hope. The beauty and mystery of a female’s body fascinated me, I love the texture of our skin, the structure of our bones, curves, and all the different parts of the body.”

Get into selections from the ‘tender’ series below, which you can see in full at Norah’s website here. And remember to give her a follow on Instagram, so you don’t miss any of her phenomenal work!
