Roger Weiss is a photographer from Switzerland. He began experimenting with photography from an early age and later on his curiosity about the expressions of humankind led him to take the path of an artistic approach. He graduated with a Mention of Excellence from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, in Milan, Italy and works today as an artist and a fashion photographer. He captures fragments of human tragedy, documenting failures and yearnings, weaknesses and strengths, pains and joys, rights violated and rights upheld. For his latest work Human Dilatations, Weiss is inspired by the Kintsugi Japanese technique, where the subject is fragmented and then reassembled, and a series of hundreds of photos are then unified into a single image. The result is a particularly detailed analysis of the body where contemporary human beings are portrayed stripped of physical perfection and power of mind. Each image represents a body whose proportions are partially distorted and prevails over a head that dissolves, without leaving a trace. The marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections are not to be feared, but encouraged. The female figure appears as a whole: a shape by itself, entirely detached from the stereotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.
