Photography // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
As told by the artist— “When I started this series, it was about process. I traveled from park, to community center, to elementary school to deserted lot with my ladder in the trunk of my car. I get it squared away on the free throw line, climb slowly to the fourth step and shoot three photographs of the backboard directly across from me. At first it was a little pedantic, but what was irritating soon became a labor of love, a ritual that made perfect sense to me. It was a formula; one that was safe, quiet, and clean.“

Blake Little Covers his Subjects in Gallons of Honey

Photography // Tuesday, February 24, 2015
For Blake Little’s latest work, “Preservation,” Little executes a simple premise and a singular technique in which his mostly unclothed subjects are covered in gallons of honey while being photographed in the studio. It’s unwieldy, and evidence of that carries through into the pictures, in the faces and bodies of the models and in the dramatic configurations of the honey itself -- all serving to highlight this unique creative process further.
