As a kid, have you ever gone through a psychological test called the Rorschach ink blots experiment? I know I went through one. If you are not sure, here is an example:

A French photographer, Olivier Valsecchi won the Hasselblad Master Award in 2012 by re-imagining the Rorschach test using the human bodies.

“I imagined some kind of graphic duels and instinctively had a look at Rorschach tests,” Valsecchi explains to the Verge. “It was a perfect fit for my project; I see a lot of human shapes in them, and I decided to make my own photographic take on the tests.”

“The artistic concept of the series was to make human sculptures, the technical concept of the series was to make photo montages without digital manipulation,” Valsecchi explains. “What you see is what you get on my camera’s screen. It took at least three hours to make each photo.”

The following images contain nudity. For more details on his inspiration, read here on the Verge.
