World-renowned photographers Claudia Rogge and Spencer Tunick possess artistic visions large enough to fill city blocks. By orchestrating large-scale installations, they create visual interpretations of order and chaos, comprised not of inanimate objects, but of human beings obediently adhering to another’s direction and vision. Rogge and Tunick’s props at times engage actively like sentient beings and at others detach like stones. And despite the fact that they are frequently unclothed, the sheer number of individuals involved and the overarching aesthetic quality of each photograph makes every human component important only inasmuch as it forms a significant piece of the whole.
These images below are primarily from Rogge’s 2007 – 2008 series, Dividuum.
A smattering of images from Tunick’s Wilderness, Adornment, and Large-Scale installation series.
