Fine art photography project by Shai Levy

“My most recurring pain is the one of separation. It might be rooted in the very moment of birth, but it is present in myriad aspects of my life. ‘Body’ is an investigation of the tension between the autonomous state of ‘self’ and its desire to merge. It examines the boundaries of our body and the search for ways to define it."

This photographic project invites us to reexamine the notion of Body, charged by the tension between the whole and its separated parts. The work, consists of twelve photographs arranged in three groups, appears as a sequence of collages in which the traditional “portrait composition” is deconstructed. Each composition expresses a distinct treatment of the body as an idea, though not allowing to completely detach from the “personal” in the frame; this work may be equally read as an invitation to observe an intimate, collaborative exploration of a photographer and his subjects.
