In haunting, theatrical compositions, photographer Evelyn Bencicova splices the beauty of vulnerability with the terror of illness and confinement. Recurring throughout her works are nude figures that crawl and cling together in empty, hospital-like rooms, their smooth, pallid skin evoking both a sensual euphoria and the fever of near-death. Sometimes the bodies arrange themselves into eerie, altar-like structures. In every otherworldly vision she creates, Bencicova has a brilliant way of stirring beauty and sensitivity within the dark, echoing corridors of fear.
