Denmark-based visual artist Marius Budu has captured a stunning photographic series, entitled Flesh Structures, using the naked bodies of women in order to create ‘human architecture’: his striking visual sculptures consist of patterns and motifs that resemble building blocks, so perfectly arranged and lighted that the viewer is mesmerized.

“I use the human body as a medium in itself. In this series, I wanted to experiment with working with the body as an architectural element, a building block. I wanted to see how different bodies with different expressive personalities would come together to build a unified structure,” he explains. “Marius Budu’s photographs are strong and focused, with few details supporting the clear impression of one thought or emotion. Through his unique use of light and shading, the pieces create structure and emphasize the sparse, yet vivid colors. The photographs are driven by his fascination with the human body as a raw material for art: Sculptured, twisted and focused on the minute details, revealing its inherent individuality. The photography plays with the viewer’s expectations of composition and motif – often portraying only ambiguous parts of the body, letting the viewer wonder or simply absorb,” Ghazaleh Communication explains in the artist’s Bio.
