About this image:
This image was inspired by the song, Echo And The Bunnymen – Lips Like Sugar. I lotioned my body up, glossed my mouth and then poured raw sugar on them. Though i realize, the end result resembles rock salt, more than sugar ;).
I love the way light and shadow carve out the body’s contours, creating a tonal range that appears almost statuesque.
