Incidental body casts
Looking at the work of photographer Philip Toledano I came across these images, here the memory of the objects/items of clothing embedded in the body is exciting because of the absence of material. The image by Rankin I found by complete fluke, and so confirms that I somehow must be on the right observational trail. Staring at these images I can recall having the same sensation when I stood in front of the work of Rachel Whiteread. The impossibility of retaining the moment has been overturned by capturing the essence of improbability through the lens.
