Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to have your entire body covered in honey.. No? Well, award winning, Los Angeles-based photographer, Blake Little, did. But rather than experiencing it first hand, he brought in a very diverse group of models to help create this series called “preservation”.
Not only does the honey give the photos an incredible aesthetic look, but the idea behind the series is equally beautiful. As he describes ‘the honey has a way of diffusing the personal qualities of the subject often making them unrecognizable and democratizing the individual with universal iconic qualities.’
He intentionally used individuals of varying ages, backgrounds and body types to explore the idea of ‘Preservation, while the honey coating emphasizes the image that everyone is equal.
Slightly claustrophobic, a little dirty but above all.. totally stunning!
