The Cave of Abdo-men
From "Pectoral Dunes" to "Shin Knee Valley," photographer Carl Warner uses the human body as his medium to sculpt breathtaking — and breathing — landscapes.
Shoulder Hill Valley
The London-based photographer shoots all the bodies in a studio, focusing on one individual at a time. The images are then pieced together in Photoshop.
Warner studied to become an illustrator, but quickly discovered that his talents were better suited to photography, a medium he found faster and more exciting.
As an advertising photographer in the '80s and '90s, Warner was successful but felt creatively unfulfilled. While searching for a something different to do with his talents, inspiration struck in the form of portabello mushrooms he saw at a grocery store. He took them back to his studio and shot his first "foodscape" — "The Mushroom Savannah."
The Desert of Sleeping Men
Some of these human-based landscapes were based on real-world landscapes, such as Utah's Double Arch Arches National Park.
