Found on Mymodernmet.com In his project Skindeep, French photographer Julien Palast studies the body and the human form in a very unique way. Generally an advertising and still life photographer, Palast went in a new direction with this portrait series. For each image, he wrapped male and female models in vibrant colors and gradients that created what he describes as "instant bas reliefs recalling of the classic imagery."
By JulienPalast Skindeep
Photographer Julien Palast refers to his SkinDeep series as 'a study on the body-object, ephemeral sculptures of the human form. Instant bas reliefs reminiscent of classic imagery.' Palast shrink wraps the human body in brilliant technicolor, at once concealing it while also highlighting its curves and contours. Palast is based in Paris, France.
