Removal: Skin by Claudia Casbarian is the second installment of a two part photographic series pertaining to the effects of removal of key elements related to the body. The photographs originally come from a book titled Daily Dress. The project chronicles 84 days of outfits worn from January 12- April 6, 2011. The images are of the clothes laid out on the floor, removed from the body, but still suggesting gesture. Details of some pieces of clothing are included.
