Preservation, A Photo Series Of Models Covered In Honey

Tao2012

Photographer Blake Little has made quite a name for himself as a celebrity photographer. So, when he asks you to stand there as you’re covered head-to-toe in sticky honey, you do so.

In his photo series, Preservation, Little takes a diverse set of models of all ages, ethnicities and species, and gets pourin’. The result is a beautiful display of the human form and, as Little describes it, looks as if they were “preserved in amber.”

See more of the slightly NSFW and very sticky images below.

50 Shades of Food, A Photo Spoof of Fifty Shades of Grey Featuring Food and Sex Toys

50-shades-of-food

® Bryan Regan

With the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey finally unleashed, the harsh reviews and parodies of the film are plentiful. Which leads us to 50 Shades of Food by photographer Bryan Regan.

The series, juxtaposing submissive humans for food items, includes a donut on a butt plug, a nimple-clamped lemon, and a poor little tied-up honey bear. At the very least, 50 Shades of Food could be a bit hunger-inducing… whether you’re “into that sort of thing” or not.

More can be found below and over at Regan’s site here. Sorta NSFW.

Pizza Is The New Black, A Series of Monochromatic ‘Pizza’ With Unusual Toppings

3

What actually constitutes a pizza? It needs to be round, sometimes square, with a base preferably made of dough. Then it needs to have stuff on it.

With those criteria in mind, Pizza Is The New Black is a series of the most interesting pizza we’ve seen in a while. The monochromatic photos include a pizza representing one color — including the dough and background. The toppings, although mostly inedible, are only meant to blend into its color scheme.

The series is brought to us by design studio Black Pizza, chef Julie Basset and photographer Erwan Fichou. One yellow pizza with extra rubber ducky, please!

Fendi: Dorset blueberry, Raspberry and vanilla Napolean

Photographer Catherine Losing was recently commissioned for food magazine Cherry Bombe’s ‘Baked’ issue. The result, delicious and impeccably-styled desserts, made into patterns from iconic fashion brands.

Fashionable folk will probably recognize this pattern from Dior — only this time it’s recreated with fruit leather and macarons. Burberry’s unmistakable criss-crossing makes for a perfect topping to a high-end sponge cake. Now, that’s yummy couture.

The Light Inside, A Photo Series of Glowing Fruits and Vegetables

zaciu8

Brought to us by Romanian photographer Radu Zaciu, The Light Inside is a wonderful photo series of glowing fruits and vegetables.

Created by placing a light source inside pieces of produce, the project was inspired by the German word for ‘lightbulb’ (glühbirne) — which translates to ‘glowing pear.’

The result is a surreal photo series that often resembles a painting, X-Ray, or planet. Check out more below, or over at Zaciu’s Flickr site.
