Reconstructing The Female Form

Scroll

Inspired by the Japanese Kintsugi technique, Swiss photographer Roger Weiss captures and reconstructs the representation of his subjects through the layering of hundreds of photos in a single image.

The process – and the resulting works – serve as a study of the female form, one which “does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections but rather encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself,” explains the photographer. “My challenge is to seek the essence of the female being in a dimension that goes beyond the logos, through my vision – the one of a male,” he continues. To witness Weiss’ work process, watch this short video.
