Two dead trouts shoved into frozen cups. A bound acrobat suspended in darkness. A disco ball disrupting a woman's face. These are some of the bizarre and loaded images found in photographer Birthe Piontek's beguiling series, "Lying Still."
Piontek's project began as a visual diary, capturing the intimate details of her daily life during a particularly rough period. Over the course of five years though, the personal project expanded its scope, becoming an unlikely investigation of the self through found photography too.
