I’m fascinated by these photographs of bones, taken by photographer Eiji Yuzawa. And while wholly involved in the subject matter of death, the photos are hardly morose. Instead, there is a fantastic sculptural quality to the works that is both calming and satisfying. I find myself most attracted to the abstract forms.
Yuzawa began photographing bones in 2006 and compiled a photobook that was released last year. His work has now been released – in what appears to be the next logical step for all fine art these days – as a series of iphone cases.
