Lovely and Provocative Photos Representing the Stages of a Woman’s Life

Self-taught French photographer Alexandra Sophie is only 20 years old, but her Jardin Fleuris series is all about exploring the stages of a woman’s life in an unexpected way. For this ongoing project, Sophie’s photographs depict various women’s nether regions, covered by delicate objects like flowers, feathers, and — most suggestive of all — a cluster of red berries dripping with juice. Marvel over these lovely and provocative photos after the jump, and visit Sophie’s website to learn more about her work.
