Istanbul-based Meltem Işık created a series of portraits that examine distortions in body perception. For the project, each of Işık’s subjects held up a magnified and printed image of part of their body.

On her recent work, Işık says she “explores how photography is associated with the construction of reality, suggesting alternative readings of the body. Utilizing the similarities and differences between the eye of the camera and human perception, she assembles images into a whole that is other than the sum of its parts.”
