The disturbing world of the Street Apes in Jakarta

Claire Mallett: Bodies and Shadows

I’m not sure how the interpretation of the female form differs when shot from a female perspective, but perhaps less sexual and more based on beauty. Los Angeles photographer, Claire Mallet has been exploring the female form for many years, and will open an exhibition of her work tonight at the Duncan Miller Projects Gallery in Los Angeles as part of the Verge Collective.

The photos were created in the absence of any illustrations, CGI, and Photoshop. Wieczorkiewicz shares some of the action behind the scenes on his blog: Wieczorkiewicz said of the project, “It was a lot of fun to work on these images.
