In his Metamorphosis series, Frederic Fontenoy seemingly pushes the visual logic of McGinley’s naked romps to the extreme. Here again are the pastoral settings and wan bodies of the latter photographer’s images, but a time lapse renders the human subjects intelligible. They become stumps of skin, trees of muscle, a naval notch, and a gesture a [...]


Or: another thing WWW can reveal to make you feel less special.

It is the work of Maiko Takeda, a Royal College graduate and Tokyo native whose ethereal designs transform the wearer into humanoid anemones and meteorological events–her earlier shadow pieces are also phenomenal.
