” I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion. The figure in the image, which is formed into something similar to a sculpture, is created by combining 10,000 individual photographs of a dancer. By putting together uninterrupted individual moments, the resulting image as a whole will appear to be something different from what actually exists. With regard to these two viewpoints, a connection can be made to a human being’s perception of presence in life.” – Shinichi Maruyama

“Eye Heart Spleen is a body of work by English artist Camila Carlow. 13 photographs representing human organs sculpted out of wild plants and weeds foraged in Bristol. The plants were collected and assembled early in the day, so as to photograph them in the best possible light, and to keep them from wilting. This work invites the viewer to regard our vital structures as beautiful living organisms, and to contemplate the miraculous work taking place inside our bodies, even in this very moment.”
‘ Hello Beautiful is a photo series that’s part of The six week Beauty Project that was launched by Selfridges at the start of May.

‘Skin is almost a poetry. Skin is the ‘box’ of our body. We all have different type of skin, from Extra White to Dark Black. Shooting Skin is a mind work, because you can see the soul of women or men behind the camera. Skin is absolutely private: the eye can found a secret scar, a strange mole, a wonderful curve, or a part of the body that it doesn’t like. ‘ – Winkler+Noah

” Ongoing project, where I use light and colored background to make plastic bags look magical. Creating a landscape within the plastic bag. Plastic bags are a huge contributor to the landfill waste, and are extremely harmful for our oceans and the creatures living there. Do not say yes to a plastic bag when shopping. These plastic bags were found in the street.” – Vilde J. Rolfsen
