SPECIMEN, human organs under a ruler
by Li Zhaohui

“Actually all of these have made me in awe of the literal interpretation even more.”
Li Zhaohui

This book is a confrontation to the inner human.
Human organs are displayed under a soft light, almost in real size.
There is a lot of doors open for interpretations, but the dialog here is almost silent.
The acceptance of our inner contents as knowledge, but also as a possible failure who needs to be torn apart, is a reflection of the duality of existence.

“I would choose carefully a black and white film in smooth and soft light in an attempt to protect the viewers from strong visual stimulation and guide them to break through the visual appearance in their minds to find the connotation.”
Li Zhaohui

Also the exceptional very high quality of prints (four tones: black and three shades of grey), and the large size of the reproductions, make this book a reference. 

The book contains also: an introduction, an interview conducted by the Finnish artist and Doctor of Art Maija Tammi and a table of plates, both translated in English, Chinese and Japanese.
