[J]oe Viola is a photographer from in New Jersey. His latest editorial Perspective Through Pose in the Park is a body (and mind) bending meditation on pose, posture and perspective. Shot in a Brooklyn park, the series of ten photographs starring model Kirika encourages viewers to shift their perspective and to understand the body as a malleable and communicative entity. Read Joe’s words on the project below.
“Shape in the human form is ever-changing, and is specific to each body. It can represent something complex, or be as simple as the position one’s body is most comfortable in. Shape in image making is something that conveys a narrative whether you know it or not. With Kirika’s elegance and poise, we explore shape in her body, and the ways in which the orientation of a photograph can transform a park in Brooklyn into a new, whimsically imaginative world.” – Joe Viola
