Bodyscapes: Creating Landscape Photos With the Human Body

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:

Elbow Point

Valley of the Reclining Women

The Sleeper

Fingers Cave

The Cave of Abdo-men

Shin Knee Valley

Pectoral Dunes

Headless Horizon

Twin Peaks

The Desert of Sleeping Men

Desert of Backs

Cut Throat Valley

To see more of Warner’s work with strange landscapes, be sure to check out our previous coverage linked above. And if you want to see his ad work, learn more about the man behind the camera, or purchase some prints for yourself, head over to his website by clicking here.
