François Robert is a photographer renown for his imagery using human bones. François Robert was born in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

Robert acquired his first skeleton when he went to an auction to buy a locker for his studio. He bought three lockers, two were empty and one had a human skeleton that was wired together. Robert did some research and traded his skeleton for a pieces of a skeleton that was already taken apart.

It took him some time to figure out what to do with his skeleton but the end result are works that are between 5 and 6 feet in size that show iconic shapes such as the Jewish Star of David or a Russian machine gun.

What a bold style of photography! Here is another great example of a style of art that is best without any color.
