Portrait photographer Blake Little drenched models in 4,500 pounds of honey for “Preservation,” a new book and exhibition at the Kopeikin Gallery in L.A.
The work of the L.A. based artist captures the warmth of the human form, although some of the images are unsettling. His models included a dog, a baby and an 85-year-old woman.
“When you cover someone in the honey, it has the effect of making them look like they’re in amber—that they’re preserved,” the photographer says in a video about the work. (See the video here – YouTube sign in required due to nudity.)
