Roger Weiss is a Swiss-born photographer educated at the Accademia di Brera, in Milan. His work in the visual arts and fashion reveals an obsession with transfiguring the human image to tease out sensual and subversive themes, so he may flaunt them in provocative ways.
Human Dilations is a study in the feminine form and an exquisitely weird foray into the subject of beauty and its stereotypes. A woman is often boiled down info a series of visual queues that objectify and define her. This project studies whether each form—in it’s distortion and elation—is a physical whole, or simply an object.
“Human Dilatations does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections,” said Weiss. “But rather, encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself, in a game of distortions that allows one to differently relate to the image, entirely detached from the stereotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.”
