If you could create anything, what would it be? Italian artist Angelo Musco has answered this question with his large-scale conceptual photographs. The compositions reflect organic and subterranean landscapes composed of thousands of human bodies. His works are often references to his traumatic childbirth and following paralysis.
The process starts with photographing nude volunteers from above, often maneuvering the shapes created to fit into his larger vision. The forms created by the models are then composited in Photoshop to create the final composition. Some of the final art pieces are as large as 40 feet wide and 12 feet tall, and required up to two years of post-production work.
He says of his process:
“It’s like being an old lady, knitting a pattern in wool, There is always a degree of imperfection . . . You don’t fix broken things; you find the beauty in them.”
