Conceptual Photography by Jim Cowan

It’s difficult to completely present Jim Cowan’s project l’Inconnu because it spreads across three different series, but the idea behind these portraits is quite fascinating in essence. The project is split between three parts, the first capturing the white ageless and almost genderless faces, the second (featured here) focusing more on the balance between creation/destruction and body/sculpture, whereas the final is more focused on threshold between life and death.

Although tackling some gigantic themes I find Jim’s series really well put together and this part in particular does a great job at illustrating the fine and fragile line between aesthetic perfection and destruction.
