Shelving the human body

DarraghCaseyShelf1In 2012, Darragh Casey began a series called “Shelving the Body”. In it, he experimented with using people’s bodies combined with specially placed shelves to support or counterbalance objects on those shelves. He was inspired by his dad who used to put up a shelf every time he got bored. Casey uses family members in the photographs of his shelving arrangements and appears himself in “shelf portraits.” There’s a nifty time-lapse video of how the photography end of it is done.
