Honey-dripped photography by Blake Little

On the set with award winning Los Angeles-based photographer Blake Little creating the photographs for his new monograph Preservation book. Edited by Bil Yoelin Blake, the book will be featured in an upcoming exhibit at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles (Mar.7- Apr.18, 2015).

quote ["When you cover someone in the honey, it has the effect of making them look like they’re in amber—that they’re preserved," Little says. "And that’s how I came up with the idea and started calling the pictures the preservation photographs"].

Mind-Bending Photography by Erik Johansson

quote [Erik Johansson is a Swedish-born artist based in Berlin who creates surreal images by recombining photographs and other materials. He captures ideas by combining images in new ways to create what looks like a real photograph, yet with logical inconsistencies to impart an effect of surrealism. Some finished images are the combination of "hundreds of original photographs" as well as raw materials, and Johansson spends dozens of hours using image manipulation software such as Adobe Photoshop to alter the image digitally and to illustrate his idea].

Whores & Madonnas by Peter Schafer

"Whores & Madonnas contrasts quite a lot to other photo essays on prostitutes, where the viewer becomes a voyeur to a degraded yet exotic existence" ...Peter Brian Schafer Brooklyn based photographer).

quote [I began this project in the fall of 2012, having read Denise Brennan's book, What’s Love Got to Do With It?, an ethnography of sex workers in a small resort town on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Built upon global inequity, Sosúa is paradoxically a place where women exert much agency and control over their lives. The stories Brennan tells of the women who move to Sosúa to pursue sex work – mostly internal migrants from Santo Domingo – paint a picture not of passive victims of circumstance but of women pragmatically carrying out plans to improve their lives and the lives of their children.
The first half of the series portrays the women at work, inhabiting their professional personas, projecting the promise of sex. Over time, they spoke with me about their lives outside work, how they arrived in Sosúa, their weekly routine of sending remittances home to support their children. As I got to know two of the women better, they gave me access to their everyday lives – their non-performance time – and I photographed them where they lived and out and about during their off-hours].
