Luca Pierro recently did a series of self portraits, solely using flour, water and milk to add affects to himself (or other subjects). I love the fact that he used something as simple as flour, milk and water to create such depth in his photographs. It’s always interesting to have someone use something so simple to create something that seems almost overdone.
Pierro also did not photoshop his work, and used his own lighting and affects to create the unique view that his art gives. He does a great job using texture in his photographs, and using different variations of light to emphasize different parts of the face and body.
Although I stopped doing self portraits this definitely gave me ideas for the future, and gave me new ideas on how to show parts of a photo I want to emphasize without editing it.
Here are some examples of his work:
