Carl Warner isn’t your typical landscape photographer. Where most would take to the outdoors, the London-based photog creates landscapes in his studio. Previously, we shared his surreal photo series Foodscapes: landscapes created using all manner of edible products.
His most recent project is a departure from his work with food, and perhaps posed an even greater challenge. Dubbed “Bodyscapes,” the series turns the ridges, hills and valleys of one or more human bodies into strange and surreal landscape photos.
“[The project] plays on the sense of space in which we dwell,” writes Warner. “The external view of ourselves therefore becomes a more abstract and perhaps more intimate reflection of our inner being when viewed as a landscape or given a sense of place.”
Each photo is named based on the body parts it is composed of, and some are more difficult to make look landscape-like than others. At the top, we have Shoulder Hill Valley. Check out the rest — complete with names in the captions — below:
