In Full Bloom: Fashion Model Amber Arbucci Takes A Dip in Jellyfish Lake

Renowned fashion model, photographer, and environmental Amber Arbucci captures photographs of animals in environments of all descriptions, a subject close to her heart. Her most recent, daring portrait series, “The Girl at Jellyfish Lake,” features herself in the nude, exposing her bare flesh to jellyfish on the Pacific island of Palau. 

Each of Arbucci’s enigmatic portraits captures her in a moment, suspended in water as her body twists through a number of live, golden jellyfish. In one, Life of the Amoral (2013), Arbucci’s bare face presses against a floating jellyfish, eyes closed, almost kissing the creature, her hair splayed behind her. Another, Fluctuating Charm (2013), shows several jellyfish passing gracefully over her body as she appears to fall through the water. Each portrait depicts Arbucci at ease, unafraid. One has the sense of stealing a glimpse into the artist’s own private fairy tale; the golden jellyfish seem to be under her spell as they swarm around her body.https://artsy.net/artwork/amber-arbucci-silent-medusa

I can’t stop looking at this and laughing because when asked about these photos during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he talks about how the first raccoon they used for this shoot got scared and mauled him. You can watch the video of the interview here, and no worries, there’s no images of the actual attack.

THAT JUST MAKES IT WAY BETTER
