This month’s NTMC Suite Artist Feature is St. Louis based lifestyle/fashion/editorial/boudoir
photographer, Mariano J.

I see the human body as living art. We are created with different shapes, sizes, and colors. What better way to create dope images of the human form on camera than in it’s natural state: nude. More in particular, the Black female body. Nudity is seen so taboo in our society by people who are afraid to look at things in a different perspective and scared to be themselves in the public eye. When I shoot females I look to create images that capture natural, sensual movements and pieces that can be on your wall and seen in a magazine. I love the way melanin skin looks in my images and I portray images that showcase Black women in an artistic view.
