Photographer Ina Jang has created a series of surreal art images called, “A World Without Words.” These bold, minimalist photographs express concepts both haunting and whimsical.

For Jang, the images are about identity, both of her self and of the viewer.

In the photos, cut out shapes cover the faces and various body parts of the subjects, so that viewers might imagine their selves in the subject’s place. This kind of visual empathy is central to Jang’s collectionIn-A-World-Without-Words-Ina-Jang-1 In-A-World-Without-Words-Ina-Jang-3 In-A-World-Without-Words-Ina-Jang-7 In-A-World-Without-Words-Ina-Jang-9 In-A-World-Without-Words-Ina-Jang-11
