Le Merche (Marketplace) is a series of images by French artist Emile Barret and Laurent Ponce. This artist/photographer duo has created a piece to show human beings literally laid out like meat in a butcher shop. These frozen images create a really creepy feeling as they are shot in an empty marketplace with its ambient, cold light reflecting from glass and metal surfaces. Emile Barret and Laurent Ponce's Le Merche is definitely open to many different interpretations and asks questions about human sexuality, ethics and existence.
