At first glance, these photographs might look like a series of beautiful surrealist landscapes. But look again and you will notice that each of these desert-like landscapes are made up entirely of the human form.

In the project Bodyscapes, photographer Carl Warner uses the unusual medium of bodies to play on the sense of space. In the photographs, legs, skin folds, jawlines, arms, torsos and feet are manipulated to look like dunes, hills, ridges and valleys, with an irresistible poetic quality.

Once you have got used to the visual vocabulary and see the images for what they really are, it becomes apparent that this body of work is actually an intimate reflection of the inner self. Warner describes his 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."

Warner’s photographs remind me of artist Bill Brandt's 'Nude' series, where predominately black and white photographs of nudes appear more like studies of sculptural for than depictions of the human body. Like Brandt, the human form becomes a sensuous wonderland, ready to be explored.

In a world where society has become numb from the constant bombardment of visual and auditory cues, Warner has mastered the art of awakening of the human sensors in a simple yet really creative way.
