With his photo series “Preservation” Los Angeles-based photographer Blake Little leaves nobody indifferent. For this stunning project, he covered models of all ages (ranging from an 18 month old baby to an 85 year old woman), races, ethnicities and body types, in honey, most of them naked. Little explains that he used 100lb worth of honey every week during shooting which accounted to over 4500lb in total over the whole project.
“When you cover someone in the honey, it has the effect of making them look like they’re in amber, that they’re preserved,” said Little.
The project “Preservation” is on view at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles (March 7 – April 18), and a book is also available.
