The New Cruelty was commissioned to New York based television production company True Entertainment to photograph a series of still-life images of preserved human skulls, bodies and various internal organs featured in the famous Bodies Exhibition. These images were used to illustrate and explain complex illnesses for the show Mystery Diagnosis on Oprah Winfrey's Network – OWN.
The production took place during the night hours in the eerily quiet exhibition space in downtown Manhattan. The most dramatic shots (featured in this gallery) came from the room featuring exhibits of the main human circulatory system in the human torso and skull.
