For Ô les mains, Belgian photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte and artist Babak Hosseiny fabricate human bodies in which hands overtake and engulf the remaining anatomy. Here, they transform the normally functional apparatus into adversarial appendages, with each digit becoming a corporeal manifestation of each subject’s internal anxieties and desires.

“They are maternity photos, but only because Dandi is pregnant,” says Vancouver-based photographer Jackie Dives of her recent session with popular musician Dandi Wind and her partner Matija. She knew she would chronicle Dandi’s pregnancy the moment she heard that the couple was expecting, and she knew that she would approach the work as a documentary series rather than a maternity shoot, cutting through the easy sentimentality of the genre to discover the authentic and spontaneous currents of sweetness and vulnerability that run between mother and father in the weeks preceding parenthood.

When London-born photographer Annie Collinge traveled across the globe to Manhattan, she could not have predicted that she would discover in one of the city’s many flea markets a discarded doll that undeniably resembled her faraway aunt Yolanda. The likeness of the 1960s antique figure, masked in goggles and outfitted for a day of skiing, to a true—if tiny— human being was what first compelled the photographer to embark on Five Inches of Limbo, for which she paired real, live sitters with their porcelain doubles.

“I want them to be happy,” says Moscow-based photographer Igor Samolet of the band of teens and twenty-somethings he met three years ago while visiting the small town in which he went to school. He was drawn to them immediately, to their recklessness and resilience, their courage and their confusion. Be Happy! is his tribute to their adventures, their booze-soaked evenings spent sprawled naked on the floor, and the adolescent dreams and impulses and sensations that animate their youth.

For Before the Camera, Montréal-based photographer Chuck Samuels confronts the objectification of the female body by casting himself as the heroine of history’s most recognizable nude portraits. For each, he surrendered himself entirely to the gaze of others—much like the original nudes would have— handing off the responsibility of directing and snapping the photos to various friends, most of whom were women.

For photographer, VICE Photo Editor, and educator Matthew Leifheit, borrowing, duplicating, and reinterpreting the work of artists who came before is an integral element of photography. For this reason, he recently asked his students at New York City’s School of Visual Arts to reproduce in photographs the some of their favorite artworks centered around the nude human form, a figure that has been nearly ubiquitous throughout the last few millennia of art history.
