Anatomical Portraits Go Beyond Skin Deep
August 20th, 2012
I’m sure you’ve seen anatomical models of the different human systems when you took biology in high school. There’s the good, old skeletal system and of course, the muscular system.
Maybe Koen Hauser had these lessons in mind when he came up with his recent series, because they’re creative, different, and probably all anatomically correct.
Dubbed the ‘Modische Atlas der Anatomie’ or the ‘Fashionable Atlas of Anatomy’ when translated, the series features digital manipulations that literally strip the skin off of the models to reveal the organs and muscles underneath.
The images exude contrasting elements, with models posing in a relaxed manner while their bones and tendons are revealed in the same image.
Even more impressive is the fact that he came up with this series and published it over a decade ago.
With this series, Koen was able to masterfully and artistically combine both science and art into one neat package.
