STRETCH IT OUT { NSFW } – JUNE YONG LEE


IMG_0512.JPG
South Korea-born, Pennsylvania-based artist, June Yong Lee, has created one of the most intimate and weird photo-series we have ever seen entitled: the “Torso Series“. In it he finds models, mostly on Craigslist, photographs their torsos from all angles, then uses photoshop to stitch together all the photos to give it a stretched out look. The resulting images are surprisingly strange, but there is something about them that keeps you staring awkwardly. Being flattened out like a hunk of dough or ancient manuscript, these anonymous floating torsos look almost otherworldly.

“This project grew out of my interest in skin and personal identity,” Lee wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. “Each photograph contains stories of each model through their visual markings on skin. Skin is [the] outer layer of us that separates or connects from who we are to the world outside. We are born with it, and skin is the biggest organ that we have. Skin defines and dictates who we are. We judge and categorize people by it. Also, it is a physical record of our life. Whether markings on skin are permanent or temporary, intentional or unintentional, skin carries our stories in a much different way than memories in our mind. I’m fascinated with skin and its characteristics.”
