Photographs of People Crammed into Uncomfortable Spaces

San Francisco-based photographer Lee Materazzi shoots photographs of people whose bodies are stuffed uncomfortably into random spaces. Her subjects are seen smushed between two doors, smothered by a garden hose, and even squeezed into a tunnel under a pathway.

All the images involve body manipulation rather than photo manipulation. She says that her work deals with the “thin line between finding oneself and losing oneself.”

Perhaps we can call this type of photograph “body stuffing”. It can be the new “planking”.

Check out more of Materazzi’s work over on her website.

    excellent concepts – though, the EXIF data is telling me these were taken with a Hasselblad H4D-31 …. doesn’t quite look like it to me….
