human Sculptures

In the early 1980s, Klaus Laubmayer began to create temporary human sculptures and incorporated natural materials such as gold leaf, ashes, clay, sand, flour, and finger paint. He deliberately used these materials to provoke an emotional and psychological effect on the subject and the viewer. By the mid 1980s, Klaus has made his mark as a prolific photographer fusing art and fashion photography into some of the most provocative images.
