Italian photographer Giuseppe Palmisano’s photographs are so intriguing! Mannequin-like bodies spread out along the road side, or placed under cushions in a nostalgically retro home. <3
As soon as the human body is used as a lifeless prop I am suddenly very intrigued. Of course, as the art history student that I am, I am well versed in the discussion about male artists portraying the female body as a passive object rather than an active subject. And Palmisano is definitely not one to break away from that problematic legacy.
Nevertheless, the pantyhose clad and otherwise topless female figures really make for an aesthetic prop.
