Marbles is a 2013 photo series by London-based photographer Ingrid Berthon-Moine that focuses specifically on the testicles of marble Greek statues found throughout Europe. The project worked towards “producing an indecipherable photograph oscillating between landscape and medical documentation.” and through these closely cropped images the photographer uses these details to examine 21st century masculinity and how both the representation of it and the idea of ornamental masculinity which until now had been largely ‘reserved’ to the female gender.
