‘Preservation’ by Blake Little

Portrait photographer Blake Little covered models in honey for his series entitled “Preservation.” 

Caught in movement, but trapped in the viscose honey, the models in “Preservation” begin to look like sculptures in motion.

Preservation

The idea was born when he used a little honey as a prop in a more traditional photo shoot. Little immediately noticed how a hand drenched in honey looked like it had been preserved in amber.

“Preserved” is one of the strongest and most particular sets of portraiture I have seen in the past years.

The series is exhibited at the Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles through April 18, 2015.
