Objectification Distortion

March 16, 2014 1 min read

Roger Weiss a swiss born, Italian trained photographer is known for his collection of works that explore the human form. In his most recent collection, “Human Dilations” he delves into beauty stereotypes by subverting our expectations of standard feminine beauty. roger_weiss2 You can see in the photographs how he contorts his sitters to create strange almost un-humanlike forms, they distort the objectification of women. roger_weiss9 As Weiss describes the compilation, “Human Dilatations does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections, 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.” roger_weiss4 The images are incredibly evocative, and I’m not entirely sure what it evokes, but certainly a strong emotion of some kind. This is a study of beauty’s hypocrisy, by elating or distorting the proportions of a certain part of these women’s bodies, it fragments and then reassembles the image of a woman. roger_weiss11   The series of photographs is kind of playing on the question “is the whole more than the sum of its parts?” which, when it comes to people, the answer should always be yes.
