Adam Voorhes and Alex Hannaford Blow Minds with These Brain Images

While a decaying human body isn’t something most would want to look at, there’s a lot to be said about strange organs like the brain that inhabit them, and photographer Adam Voorhes and his journalist friend Alex Hannaford creepily capture this curiosity perfectly with their mind blowing series entitled ‘Malformed.'

Voorhes says that he got the inspiration for this shoot after a magazine he was working for asked him to photograph a normal human brain. The result of this mission led him to a large storage closet in the University of Texas where Voorhes soon became obsessed with photographing the University’s massive collection of formaldehyde-preserved brains.

Accompanied by a 1,500 word essay written by Alex Hannaford, Adam Voorhes photographed this macabre collection of brains that date all the way back to the 1950s for this slimy series of vintage human anatomy. Stats for Contorted Cranium Photography Trending: Older & Average
