Philippe Bréson, ‘Stigmata #80’, Artist's Proof

The selected photographs of Philippe Bréson in his ‘Nus’ series offer us his conception of eroticism. The woman is mutilated, deformed, sacrificed in a sublime manner. In the process of this change – from the first print to the final rendered image, the truth is altered because of the creative act of the photographer. Philippe Bréson sees his work as an extension of the Battalion thought. Where Georges Bataille cites “transgression of boundaries, the photographer tackles the limits of the representation of the body, in order to present an inner experience.”
