You may recall the Inkblot or “Rorschach” tests from a few movies but basically they are a set of abstract patterns shown to patients by psychologists in an effort to determine state of mind. Well French born photographer Olivier Valsecchi has used these strange artforms as inspiration for his nude photography collection called ‘Klecksography’.

Olivier commented – “The artistic concept of the series was to make human sculptures, the technical concept of the series was to make photo montages without digital manipulation,” Valsecchi explains. “What you see is what you get on my camera’s screen. It took at least three hours to make each photo.”

“The first job was to cast people who looked alike. Then I showed them their respective positions, placed everyone on the stage, and the game could start. They had to strike a pose for several minutes while I was yelling at everyone to move very slowly, up or down, left or right, to be symmetrical with the opposite side.”
