Antony Crossfield, 1972, UK, is a photographer who digitally manipulates his images. He tries to “question and undermine traditional conceptions of corporeality whilst exploring the relationship between the body and identity.” Much like a painter he combines his subjects with each other or other objects, presenting the body as unstable and constantly in flux. In his series Foreign Body he constructed the final photographs from various elements shot at different times and angles. He carefully puts every aspect of the images together, also thinking about the decor and the objects in the room as narrative symbols. The process of making an image can take up to several months. The following images come from the series Foreign Body, Missing Mass and War Dance.
