Abstract: The subject of this photographic work is a space tailored to the human body ‐ the morgue. Here we intend to explore not the notion of shock, of confrontation, but the beauty of a space that causes the ambiguity. On one side this space is done only to think of the physical body (in its measures and weights in its representation, where the invisible – the internal – becomes an object of study) on the other side it generates a serene dream dimension. There is also a sense of being, an anti‐individualism, as this space is not thought for a specific body but a regular body, ie an average between the general and particular characteristics of the human body. It is intended, with the formats used, to refer to a particular design and organization of space that submits to the use made in century XV of the Tondo (It adorned the tombs, representing issues such as Madonna and Child and narrative scenes. During Renaissance it was, among other things, used as a decorative element in architecture, but we can retreat further, as the Tondo was also used on Greek vases. It also links with the music, often called Rondo). The square‐shape, with a stable structure appealing to rationality constrains and delimits the Tondo, enclosing its notion of movement and continuity to create a dynamic relationship between the two, almost contradictory in the organization and composition of each image
