There are very few times where the title of a work of Photography perfectly reflects the content presented, yet, "Arabian Lovers" can not express more perfectly the underlying emotions and aesthetics of that title. It somehow manages to be elaborate and detailed while keeping a simple, fuss less sense of design.

What is the most striking about "Arabian Lovers" is how little our visual attitudes of the old Middle East has changed. Whether it be classics such as "Laurence of Arabia" and "Aladdin"to new renditions such as "Prince of Persia" or the "Assassin's Creed" franchise, our visual instinct of this ancient culture remains untouched.

The photographic skill that Hart-Worx presents to us is a masterful sense of composition. While dressing the models in decadent fashion, he keeps the background void of distraction, fixating our visual interest on the young couple. The lighting matches the desired atmosphere, subtle yet mysterious, our eyes in a constant state of motion over the figures. The neutral palette of tans and browns make for an almost relaxing visual stimulus, breached only by the splashes of turquoise and salmon.

The beauty portrayed by both male and female model presents the perfect Yin and Yang of femininity and masculinity. The males perfectly defined face and arms create a great contrast to the females soft and delicate curves. Both in a world of their own despite being so close.

In short, this is a work that represents figure photography at it's finest. Everything from composition to color is about as close to flawless as one can create. I look forward to seeing more wonderful works from this artist in the near future.
