Closed Contact by Jenny Saville & Glen Luchford 2 comments... » After having observed the operations of reconstructive- and aesthetic surgery, acclaimed figurative painter Jenny Saville was eager to express the violence and anesthetized pain of this experience in her own work. She and fashion photographer Glenn Luchford therefore began an collaboration that captures the full range of color, tone, and topography of live flesh, in large photographic tableaux that portray Saville’s own body.
Jenny Saville- Closed Contact 1995 This series was created by photographer Glen Luchford and Jenny Saville. It was created by her laying down on glass and then photographing her from the underneath. I love the shape in this series as its very distorted and irregular, the picture is also quite dense as it fills the whole space. The colours are all of similar tone which is typical of Jenny Saville in most of her work, she uses lots of cold colours with her interpretation of bodies.
