Arno Nollen wants to give a total picture of the girl – not in the sense that he wishes to assemble an encyclopedic overview of archetypes of all sorts which he would classify according to looks, profession or background. This kind of catagorical thinking is totally alien to him and is at odds with his intention of emphasing precisely the uniqueness of each girl. His photographs are much more a variegated mixture of impressions a collection of almost random atmospheric images that move between dream and reality, between playful nudity and seductive eroticism, between candid vulnerabillity and provocative self-assurance.
