Alan John Herbert: “The Body”
Alan John Herbert‘s The Body has only one flaw, it is too brief. It is such a beautiful series–brilliant even. The two mediums, illustration and photography, partake in a wonderful waltz, gliding across your psyche without missing a beat.

Made with no visual reference material, these pieces take reference from the memory and experience of drawing from real cadavers and specimens at the Gordon Museum of Pathology and dissection lab at Kings College, London- but are entirely imagined. They explore how a specific knowledge base informs making, and how these experiences create a unique aesthetic understanding.
