Project 12:31- Photography made from a murderer!

Incredible series of photographs from Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott. In 1993 a convicted murderer was executed. His body was given to science, segmented and photographed for medical science. The photographs put it back together with powerful results. See the series here.

Each image was created with a combination of night photography and long-exposure photographs of the animation below:

Source Data for Photography/12:31 from Croix Gagnon on Vimeo.

This animation represents the entire data set (1,871 slices) of the male cadaver from the Visible Human Project. The animation was played fullscreen on a computer, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver. Variations in the movement of the computer during each exposure created differences in the shape of the body throughout the series. See more about this here.
