ALCHEMY, featuring never before seen photos, is award-winning photographer Michel Leroy’s most defining project. His collaboration with professional athletes with varying body types began in 2017, and has resulted in images that are vulnerable and explicit without sexual objectification. The photos are notable for the tactile permanence of flesh revealed through the in-camera technique and lighting that enhance textures and brings out details unseen by the causal glance. Intentional shadowing and the ambiguous mixture of masculine and feminine posing further blur the lines between the body and identity, challenging the viewers to question their assumptions. By emphasizing form over identity, Leroy seduces the viewer with insights that reveal empathy and acceptance for the physical similarities of the human body over individual differences.
