The Arno Rafael Minkkinen photograph series utilizes Minkkinen's body to create the beautiful silhouettes. His work is centered around landscapes, as he captures the raw elements that surround it.

In this remarkable series, Minkkinen is able to bend and twist his body into surreal shapes, mimicking the structures and backdrop. These photos force one to use the imagination in order to capture what the artist is trying to convey. For example, the photo with a clenched fist below the tree stump, makes it appear as if Minkkinen is holding a stash of hay.

Artists who can stretch the limits and think outside of the box are able to capture and intrigue viewers, which keeps them wanting more.
