Real Human Bones Rearranged To Capture Impact Of War
By Syafiqah Omar, 10 Feb 2012
Formerly based in Chicago, photographer Francois Rover has used real human bones in his new series of artworks to illustrate the consequences of war.
Robert spends hours arranging the bones into shapes that are five to six feet wide to create surreal images associated with war, before photographing them.
According to Robert, he uses the human skeleton as it is by itself a powerful symbol that signifies the remains of life.
“I spend a lot of time on my knees,” says the 63-year-old. “You can imagine how my knees hurt when I decided to create a complete alphabet in order to make words along with the symbols/images”.
