Fine-Art Photography: “Live/Lev” by Thomas Petersen

What really strikes me about this photo is its natural dynamics, the innocent nakedness and the colour scheme that focusses on the tone of the human skin. The abstracted young man running through the woods (maybe fleeing from somebody or something?) is caught by the camera as a mere shadow, as a kind of ghost, if you like, but at the same time very much alive.
