‘Bodyscapes’ is the latest series by photographs Anton Belovodchenko. The featured women show surprisingly flexibility, contorting their bodies in various ways. Black and white photography strips away color, leaving only gray skin and dark shadows, accentuating every bone, muscle and wrinkle. It’s a sculpture in flesh.
Traditionally, bodyscapes is a photography genre of taking pictures of the human body as if it was landscape. Belovodchenko, who comes from Novosibirsk, makes his own maps from the shapes of the female form.
In a world where what is considered a ‘normal’ female body shape is a hot topic, it will be interesting to see the reaction to this series. Of course the female body comes in all shapes and sizes, including slim and athletic ones…
