Note: Contains nudity.

Asger Carlsen is a photographer who approaches his art from a unique and groundbreaking angle. One only has to look at the way he composes his subjects to get a feeling for his way of thinking: surreal portraits of models arranged with duplicate faces and makeshift wooden bodies. He takes apart the human body and re-builds it like he is playing with modelling clay.
