Photograhy, “Longing for Apples”, plexi photograph mounted on a wooden light box. Aia Jüdes is a Swedish interdisciplinary artist, fashion photographer and experimental crafter. She loves the resulting images from shooting at night with her analogue Hasselblad camera; and this suggestive and humorous photograph titled “Longing for Apples” is from one such photo shoot.
The image shows a dancer in a latex suit, frolicking about in the garden and swinging from lush apple trees. “Longing for Apples” represents a state of longing for when all of us are finally free to go outside again and really live out our pent-up desires, whatever they might be. The photograph has a playful reference to the Garden of Eden and Eve munching on the forbidden apple, but this modern-day Eve is not one bit ashamed! The work measures 140 x 140 cm.
Aia Jüdes (b. 1979) resides and works in Stockholm. She is a self-taught artist with a background in fashion photography. Jüdes works with experimental craft in the periphery between sloyd, design and art. She is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.
