The Yago Partal Defragmentados series depicts the figure of a man with a specific focus upon the body parts. The topless male is displayed cut up via holes and splices, enabling him to come across as entirely transparent within each image.

Partal is a photographer based in Barcelona. He manipulates his subjects via digital tools, distorting his images as he sees fit. The notion of feeling incomplete is central to the Defragmentados project. His cut outs are thus emblematic of this greater theme which is largely at play in Partal's portfolio, getting at these emotions in a literal sense as he renders the otherwise full bodies to be missing crucial components, among them eyes and various limbs.
