Collaboration between paper artist Elisabeth M Marttala and photographer Johan Sundell.
“Esthetic prosthetic is a project created by the paper artist Elisabeth M Marttala and photographer Johan Sundell. The project deals with the human being’s need to embellish oneself and to enhance one’s personality through attributes. This is something we strive for today and have always strived for. The need dates back to the Roman Empire, the Antiquity and the Maya civilisation. Many times human vanity creates attributes that are simply unpractical and sometimes even lethal.”
