California-based photographer Jean Paul Bourdier creates haunting photographic images that allow viewers to see the environment from inside out by painting the bodies of models, thereby making them one with the desert landscape. Bourdier eschews any digital altering, instead combining primal forms and materials with diverse textures to create exciting new interpretations of timeless nature and temporal body.

The artist is now trying to get funding through Kickstarter for his second book  “Leap into the Blue” :

“I’m hoping that through the unexpected wealth of surreal situations photographed, one may be brought to experience a different sense of living poetically or find new liberating perspectives in regards to how we can relate to our surroundings, appreciate beauty and light, or wonder about our own being or what we aspire to.”
