Unusual Human Body Photography

Hermann Forsterling Captures Forms in Abstract Ways

— October 3, 2014 — Naughty
The human body photography of Hermann Försterling, a photographer and painter hailing from Germany, is both unusual and disturbing. Although it borders on the line of fetishism, there is something innately artistic about the poses. Focusing on the buttocks, the rest of the body is often obscured by milky water or dark shadows.

What makes the human body photography even more captivating is the finish of the images. The photographs have been etched onto hand-made paper with a copper plate to achieve the visual effects. There is something almost morbid about the human body photography, as though they are part of campaign visuals for 'American Horror Story.' It also forces people to look at different parts in different ways and appreciate the form as art.
