“Minimal Body” is a study of the human form using color, shape, composition, and light.
Rather than focusing on the entire body, Toby chooses to pay attention to the small details that often go unnoticed. Using the camera and the frame, Toby recontextualizes the human body and captures individual components. By doing this, his photos surprise the viewers by presenting a different way to observe the beauty of the body. Unlike traditional portrait photography that captures the whole person, Toby’s scope is on the details and parts of a person. Looking at a piece of the puzzle, rather than the whole body. Toby’s goal is to highlight and preserve the small and unobtrusive sight of the human body.
