Bill Durgin’s incredible ‘Figure Studies’ series transcends traditional photography into sculpting a piece of art with one’s camera. The images are the result of complex arrangements of the body parts which require extreme flexibility and contortion by the model to achieve an "austere effect contortion."
The images showcase the beauty of the human body, and as with some of the famous Greek statues, Durgin’s creations are headless. The focus is on the body, not the face.
The New York based Durgin will have a solo exhibition at the Merge Gallery entitled "Figurations." The exhibit will be open between September 4, 2008 and October 11, 2008.
