Sculptures of Decomposing Body Parts by Yuichi Ikehata


Japanese photographer Yuichi Ikehata creates realistic sculptures of human body parts using clay, wire and paper. He then photographs the sculptures and merges them into unrealistic worlds to create Long Term Memory (LTM), an ongoing photographic series that “puts audiences in the ambivalent position of not knowing what is real and what is not.”

The 40-year old artist currently lives and works in Chiba, Japan.
