French photographer Julien Palast brings us a photo set entitled “Skindeep”, one where silhouettes of the male and female forms are presented behind vibrant gradients of color in a kind of “shrink-wrapped” presentation. Aspects of the the human form reveal themselves as the material Palast uses tightly hugs the subjects features.[see_also]
What’s interesting about Skindeep is that despite basically shrink-wrapping and hiding the human forms, one can become more aware of them. The contours and curves of the female and male figures are slickly highlighted by the well-selected material: a gradiented array of vibrantly tropical colors with just enough sheen in all the right places. Different emotions are exemplified in the unique series where one can appreciate the human body even more through its sticky form.
