In this newest series, Coe captures the incomparable island of Palm Beach with an alluring new sense of style. In these images, nude female figures occupy some of Palm Beach’s most notable locations, including the Colony Hotel, Le Bilboquet, and Ta-boo restaurant of Worth Avenue, and embody the very essence of the Palm Beach lifestyle.
The figures in these compositions exist in a state of anonymity up against the stunning backdrop of Florida’s most exclusive beachfront town. Proceeding with the utmost confidence, the sense of mystery demonstrated by the subjects adds to the provocative nature of Coe’s work. The sensuality of the female body is perfectly matched with the stunning, carefree nature of the Palm Beach landscape. Whether diving into the Colony’s ice cream cart or basking in the poolside sunlight, the figures in these images emulate pleasure, solitude, and relaxation.
In this body of work, Nathan Coe undoubtedly brings style and glamor to new heights. With a stunning attention to light and shadows, angles and lines, and compositional perspective, these works leave the viewer wanting more. Here, Coe puts forth a cutting-edge grouping of high-style photographs, making up his most innovative body of work yet.
