Jose Luis Cuevas - On The Resistence Of Bodies
|Publisher||Cabeza De Chorlito|
A photographic essay shot in Mexico City between 2009 and 2017 by José Luis Cuevas, ‘On the Resistance of the Bodies’ emerges from his personal experiences and observations about the political, economic, and social systems that govern and erode us, and by extension, our bodies. The series of photographs is interspersed with heavy machinery, portraits of individuals deformed by injury, abuse, and obesity, images from the morgue, car wrecks, medical apparatus, and other objects. Violence is the common thread linking these confronting images, which together propose a symbolic approach that highlights the vulnerability and ephemeral nature of the human body.
