Form, speaks of the human condition and our increasing alienation from our own bodies. In these photographs, what should be intimately familiar is transformed into an unfamiliar sculpture. Photographed in this contorted fashion, the body becomes almost inhuman; it is a mindless mass of flesh, a growth. Although the figures are abstract they still retain many human qualities; foetal like poses, flecks of freckles and the subtle arc of the spine. The forms photographed by Chloe Rosser are a stark contrast to our society’s concept of an ‘ideal body’. While their peculiarity and soft lighting intrigues us, a sense of the cadaver repels us.
