French photographer Alix Marie's photographs are a disturbing exploration of the mutated human body. Each photograph begins with a nude image of Marie herself or others close to her. The photographs are then taken and transformed into large installations and sculptures until it is not entirely obvious that they began as photographs of the nude human body. When converted to sculptures, the odd proportions and shapes make it difficult to identify their origin as photographs of the human body.

Alix Marie's provocative photographs aim to provoke dialogue about humans' uneasy and tense relationships with their bodies. The photos also present a very naked and honest intimacy that is completely stripped down and impassioned without being irreverent.
