My name is Aliocha Merker and I am a swiss fine art, movie stills and portrait photographer living in Rome, Italy. “Divine Cracks” represents my idealisation of the feminine essence as the source of creative rebirth, an ode to woman as her whole, depicted in an almost abstract, ethereal and elegant black&white. My love declaration to all women. I have been shooting this project for the past three years, now I aim to produce about 30 1x1mt fine art prints and a limited number catalog for a solo exhibition.
