In 2007, Pinar Yolacan created a series of 22 photographs of Afro-Brazilian women from an island off the coast of Brazil called "Maria". The clothing the women are wearing was created with a combination of fabric and the placenta of animals bought at a local Brazilian market.

Her series titled "Perishables" is stunning.
