Morph into Exposure



 
Eva Klasson demonstrates an entirely new approach to portraiture. Her photographs explore the human form through extreme close ups. This deconstructs the form, mutating the features into a new unfamiliar shape which can be interpreted on countless levels. The staggering level of intimacy with her subject evokes discomfort through the invasion of privacy - the subject left prey to the attack of the camera.
