Jess. 2010. Carrie Levy

From The New Yorker:

Levy’s photographs of men have always been oddly fraught. In a new series of mostly small black-and-white images, her naked subjects twist, strain, and collapse in front of the camera in attitudes that suggest both agony and ecstasy, torture and sex. Inspired in part by vintage medical and forensic photographs, the pictures also zero in on details familiar from exposés on mental hospitals: contorted limbs, silent screams, drool. Levy is exploring female power and male vulnerability here, but her work doesn’t feel cruel or sensational. Instead, it’s tender and genuinely moving.
