Body Builder by Anna Lomax, a set designer born and based in London, England, is a photographic series that is not about the world of body building. Instead, the UK artist has built up her model's body with piles of towels, blankets, scraps and even some cleaning supplies almost to the point of toppling over. Placed center stage, Lomax says, "I like the idea of her being like a life drawing model in a class, but losing all the figurative features with her costume."

Shot by photographer Jess Bonham, Body Builder by Anna Lomax is inspired by Oskar Schlemmer‘s Triadic Ballet. The artist often references bodies, Bauhaus and ballet when it comes to her set designs. Quirky and sculptural, the images will resonate with people in different ways.
