Ecce Homo, Latin for “behold the man,” is a common artistic motif with Biblical origins that has since been expanded to include depictions of violence and war. In Evelyn Bencicova‘s project Ecce Homo, from which most of these photographs are taken, many faceless nude bodies appear in strange positions. Some are arranged on shelves or tables, while others are sprawled in masses on the floor. I think the way these bodies are used is almost sculptural, as if they create new, inhuman shapes when they are combined and contorted this way. While the images aren’t obviously violent, I think they do show stark, uncomfortable scenes that could represent human suffering. Bencicova is from Berlin, Germany.
