Los Angeles-based Cecelia Webber takes nude photos of the human body and
assembles them in the shape of flowers and butterflies.
Three years ago, Cecelia Webber was a neuroscience graduate indulging in photography
in her spare time...
One fine day, she shot a nude figure against a black background and it looked so
much like a petal that she just went with it.
Ain't these some of the most stunning images you’ve ever seen?
Cecelia uses Photoshop to create these stunning images,but this work isn’t as easy
as you might think...
The production process requires serious sketching and planning to figure out exactly
what kind of poses are needed for each project.
Layering hundreds of photographs she shot into a single piece to create vibrantly
colored flowers made up entirely of the human body, hell of a job isn't it?
Legs became petals, arms became stamen, and she kept finding new ways of turning
instances of the human form into parts of her unique flowers. Just like this more
than pretty sunflower.
Cecelia often takes over 50 photos of a single pose to make sure she achieves the
Then comes the hard part – digitally cutting, rotating, coloring and assembling
the human nudes into complex flowers.
She layers up to 700 images to achieve the desired effect and sometimes works as
long as two months on a single piece.
Wasn't all that hard work worth it? Look at the stunning results...
"The most difficult part is orchestrating the relationships between the different
poses, and thinking of the human body as a three dimensional object collapsed into
a 2D plane to form a shape", Webber says.
Look at this breath-takingly stunning Lotus.
The reds and blacks in this picture, make this piece gorgeous. Don't miss the use
of the head of hair in the center.
Bet! When watched from a distance no one including you can tell this isn't a real
What use of human bodies!!! Yes, those little flowers hanging over there.
Cecelia hasn't stopped working by the way. Just as this combination of millions
of humans layered one over other...
She has recently created series on birds and butterflies out of human nudes and
plans an entire exhibition. Waiting already?
The best preserved for the last. A peacock out of human bodies? This is what we
call dazzingly beautiful.
