Camila Carlow is fascinated by our inner deep-biological structures and has created a collection of 13 images collection to represent what we all have inside. Born in Guatemala but based in Bristol, she crafts wonderful images of human organs out of natural found materials as an expression of their vital importance and inherent fragility. She uses foraged vines, flowers, berries, moss, leaves and even small creatures like a snail pictured resting on an eyeball.

Carlow’s green male reproductive system, for example, is crafted from wild berries, vines, blood-red tiny flowers and two small quinces as testicles. To represent a gut, she weaved mossy ferns sprinkled with orange berries that depict our complex intestines. “Regardless of whether we fill ourselves with toxins or nourishing food, whether we exercise or not—our organs sustain us, working away effortlessly and unnoticed”, the artist states.
