Sugar Creatures

This is an ongoing project on which I am working with Olja Markovic. We are focusing on the personal experience of the models, exploring the body movement and emotion. The process of making these photographs is more like a contemporary dance performance. Every photo shoot is different and authentic. Models are covered with glucose syrup and we encourage them to express as many sensations they feel moving from one pose to another. Our goal is to make the images that are strongly sculptural, giving the impression that the person is just born, while the costume symbolizes some sort of placenta.
