Tender Sacrifice: The Photography of Ines Kozic

Ines Kozic is a French photographer who decorates youthful bodies with symbols of sorrow, contemplation, and death. Insects are a recurring motif in her work, representing the transience of life and material processes of decay. Her more recent black and white images explore the feminine form in dark relation with the forest, drawing on fairy tales and the occult to evoke deep emotions and human mythologies.
