Jose Joaquin Figueroa (and more)

Saw Figueroa's work in an exhibition on Euro-American photographers. You can find his work here. I remember seeing African necklaces made with coca-cola lids and barbie heads in a museum in Jo'burg.

Reminds me of many other body and branding projects such as this by Anna Halldin-Maule:

or this other one by LaChapelle:

or this very controverisal one (the pigs were alledgedly sedated and tattooed and then lived pampered until their natural lives when their skins were used) by Wim Delvoye:
