The Shadow Line | Michal Korta
Polish photographer Michal Korta's series The Shadow Line begun when he discovered a weathered animal skull while on a walk. After photographing the skull Michal began delving into the nature of animal instinct and mortality. The sub-series Naked Bone are a set of detailed black and white images of skulls against a harsh black backdrop which illuminates every crack and curve. Korta uses skulls found by himself or gifted to him by friends, preferring his subjects to have flaws and remnants of their past environment. Michal's series is a stark look at death and reminds the viewer that we too are just animals, made up of bone.
