‘Bodyscapes’ is the new photo series by the Russian photographer Anton Belovodchenko which illuminates the beauty of female human body and breaks that mold in the most refreshing ways.
The series document the details of his models’ contorted positions. The portraits are black and white and this simple form allows the viewer to appreciate the female anatomy without distraction. The positions create uncommon imagery such as emphasized spinal columns, prominent ribs or flexed muscles.
Traditionally, bodyscapes is a female nude genre that deals with the human body as if it was landscape. The featured women show surprisingly flexibility, contorting their bodies in various ways, leaving only gray skin and dark shadows, accentuating every bone, muscle and wrinkle. It’s a sculpture in flesh.
