Carl Warner’s Bodyscapes features creative use of the human form to simulate intricate landscape photographs.

At first glance, you may think that these images by UK-based advertising photographer Carl Warner are photographs of desert landscapes, perhaps shot in Namibia or Utah, but upon closer inspection, you’ll notice something different…

With Bodyscapes, Carl makes creative use of the human body to simulate intricate landscape photographs. He explains the work as “an alternative portrait of a human being whose body becomes a landscape of themselves and plays on the sense of space in which we dwell. The external view of ourselves therefore becomes a more abstract and perhaps more intimate reflection of our inner being when viewed as a landscape or given a sense of place.”
