Corpus-delicti-narrowed Monstrosities

How many times have you been told “don’t stare—it’s not polite”? How long can you look at something … someone, before you turn your head in strict adherence to that law? How long does that image stick in your mind and gnaw at your psyche with a desire to have just one more peek? Three women invite you to look, to witness. They are freaks, abominations, monsters in the flesh—or are they? Peel back their skin and see for yourself.
