When people showed up to Blake Little's studio in response to a Craigslist ad calling for actors, the amateur thespians didn't realize what they were in for. Fascinated with honey as a symbol and an artistic medium, Little asked his subjects to strip naked and pose in front of a monochromatic backdrop while his assistants doused them in gallons of the sticky, viscous substance. The experiment yielded a striking photo series in which people with a diverse array of body types and aesthetics appear transformed into statues. Little will exhibit the results in is solo show, "Preservation," opening March 7 at Kopeikin Gallery in Culver City, CA.
