Anatomies

Photographs from a
dissection practice

“The body was, at it’s core, a mystery capable of acting with
it’s own will,
 and according to a set of rules of which the subject
who inhabited that body had little or no knowledge”.

Jonathan Sawday, The Body Emblazoned

Here, presented through a photographic lens, are idiosyncratic bodies constructed, dissected and re-assembled. These bodies consists of past studio work, over-the-counter stomach relievers, licorice and mint candy, medical supplies and plant matter.

The act of looking at this kind of body from a unfamiliar perspective is meant to encourage further exploration. One intriguing path, among many, is considering ourselves as bodies in simultaneous states of disrepair, decay, relief, growth and transformation.
