The art of human bodies covered in honey
Blake Little is an award winning, Los Angeles-based photographer best known for his ability to intimately capture the energy and personality of his subjects. His skills as a portrait photographer have garnered him a reputation as a favorite amongst celebrities, international publications, and corporate clients. He has many outstanding portrait series, which includes “Preservation”, a series of photographs where models were drenched in 4,500 pounds of honey for a book and exhibition at the Kopeikin Gallery in L.A.
Preservation has many meanings, from the physical to the spiritual. At the most basic – and perhaps the most important – level it can denote survival. Blake Little’s Preservation’s series combine the old and the new in a bold way. His vivid images startle the viewer. They freeze the human form, preserving it not in proverbial amber, but rather – and unexpectedly – in honey.
