Roger Weiss is a Swiss-born photographer educated at the Accademia di Brera, in Milan. His fashion and fine art photography displays an obsession with the human form. Weiss teases sensuality and subversive themes from his subjects, flaunting them in evocative ways to touch on issues of the objectification of women.
Human Dilations is a study in the feminine form and foray into the subject of beauty and it’s stereotypes. A woman is often boiled down info a series of visual queues that objectify and define her. This project studies whether each form—in it’s distortion and elation—is a physical whole, or simply an object.
“Human Dilatations does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections,” said Weiss. “But rather, encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself, in a game of distortions that allows one to differently relate to the image, entirely detached from the stereotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.” (via savage)
