Bodyscapes? What does that mean? You probably won’t see it anywhere since that is just coined for this special photo collection from Carl Warner.
Instead of a photographer, Warner like to consider himself as a ‘photographic illustrator’, one who creates something from nothing or transforms one thing into another rather than simply capturing it. Like the Bodyscapes series presented by, Warner has sculpted monumental landscapes out of a well-built muscular body with the help of inventive and precise composition and lighting. In the picture, elbows and knees became mountains, backs and necks turned into valleys and desserts.
While most of the scenes appear to be composed out of several models, all of them were actually sculpted from a single person. Then Warner painstakingly stitched together and brought us this majestic Bodyscapes series.
