Jacques Zolty (French, b.1945) is a former fashion model turned photographer best known for his intimate images that seek to contemplate and immortalize beauty. The artist explains, "After years of posing for the most famous photographers, I felt it was time for me to change direction and become a witness, a beholder. To be behind the lens is a privilege. The camera acts as a filter and at the same time it removes it. What you capture comes to life."
