In his series, “Body Language,” photographer Martin Kruck captured messages imprinted on skin. These cryptic messages such as “too late” are made even more curious with their indentation on the human body. The marks appear to be temporary which contributes to the ephemeral nature of the work.

Martin Kruck works as a Professor of Art at New Jersey City University. His work has been shown in 25 solo exhibitions and in over 100 group exhibitions. He is currently based outside of New York City.
