    Blake said,"I noticed there was something universal about the people when they were covered in honey, so I wanted to use all different kinds of models and body types. The transformation is amazing in how it changes, distorts and amplifies the human body".

    Little further added,“The other thing about covering someone with honey is that, with a few exceptions, your eyes are closed. The eyes are – for me – the key to a strong portrait. But without the eyes, the physicality of being covered in honey, that physical emotion replaced the emotion of the eyes. That s why the photographs are still portraits. The individuals react differently to the experience”.

    He further added,"We photographed on a platform three feet above the ground. The platform was inside of a container that collected the honey, which went into a trough that fed into a drain under the platform. Large buckets collected the honey so we could keep photographing".

    He also said,"Honey comes off really easy because it s a natural substance. We covered the whole studio in plastic but we d still spend half a day cleaning the walls and floor".
