Version soft is a series of photographic self-portraits by Hicham Benohoud, in which his naked body ensnared in various threads and yarns and tapes. Benohoud’s photographs are both staged and documentary. They show how the surreal can be embedded in the everyday and how little enactments of the absurd can tear holes in the fabric of ‘normalcy’ that usually keeps people’s creative ambitions under wrap.
