London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz creates these striking superhero women portraits with milk and food coloring, layering up to 200 photos of the same model with different milk splashes to create the final images.
Guido Argentini’s models in his series “Argentum,” are covered in shiny silver makeup and are meant to cover the range of women in Greek mythology, from Demeter and Persephone to Artemis and Electra.
Evoking the luminous polished planes of the work of Brancusi and the verve of Degas’ ballet sketches, these photographs endow the human body with both the solidity of sculpture and the vivid energy of dance.
Using geometrical props Guido Argentini created a contrast between the human body and the archetypal forms of geometry: triangles, circles and squares.
Israeli artist Ronit Bigal in her “Body Scripture II” series uses digital photography overlaid with Biblical Hebrew text.

"The photographic series NAKED SILHOUETTE ALPHABET is a latin alphabet art, formed by the naked body and performance of experimental textures that depict the silhouette. In this series the goal is to highlight the dialectical relationship between anatomy and visual arts. Each image displays the way in which the body turns into one illustrative and choreographic communication channel of a message. The body is cut off from its physical nature and is perceived as an imprint. The body shape becomes a letter through a deliberately abstract and other-worldly aesthetic."
