Compelling Images Of Naked People Who Are Completely Covered In Honey (NSFW)

Artist and photographer Black Little has created a visually arresting series of images that features naked people who have been drenched in copious amount of honey.

Titled “Preservation”, the project “ at the most basic – and perhaps the most important – level can denote survival”. Using the honey as a short of “liquid amber”, the viewer gets the sense that the subjects are being coated in the golden substance so as to encase and thus protect them.

As the honey obscures and blurs the unique facial features of the subjects, it has “a way of democratizing people, to transform them in kind of a universal way”.

Little would be presenting these photographs at his upcoming exhibition at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, which will open on 7 March 2015—he has also compiled them into a beautiful art book, which you can order here.

Watch the video below to get a behind-the-scenes look of how these compelling images were made.
