Reconstructing The Female Form

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.
