Years ago, at an art school in Paris, Maja Forsslund spent much of her time in the life drawing studio, making quick sketches croquis drawing of nude models. In the photobook, AKT, Forsslund returns to a studio, this time in Krakow, Poland, replacing her pencils and charcoal with a camera. The resulting photographs display a wonderful mix of sensibilities, a testament to her background as both an artist and a photographer. These portraits are simple but beautiful, taken with the sensitivity and aesthetic of someone who sat in a similar studio for six years. At the same time, Forsslund benefits from her experience of drawing and expands upon it with her camera. Degas-like , she captures both the act itself and the precious moments before, after, in between.

Nude photography is the creation of any photograph which contains an image of a nude or semi-nude person, or an image suggestive of nudity. Nude photography is undertaken for a variety of purposes, including educational uses, commercial applications and artistic creations. The exhibition or publication of nude photographs may be controversial, more so in some cultures or countries than in others, and especially if the subject is a minor.
