Words on Skin
Posted By Andrea Weckerle On January 22, 2007 @ 6:53 am In Art of Photography | No Comments
The combination of two art forms, done successfully and for maximum effect, can have a visceral effect on viewers. Take writing and photography, both extremely powerful on their own. When used together — when the choice of words and phrases is an integral part of the image conveyed — the result can be surprising and unique.
With lines such as “I’m surprised how much I miss you”  written across a woman’s back, or “Try harder, I’m worth it”  written on the arms of a woman covering her nude body, the photographs are a testament to love, loss, longing and strength.
For other examples of this approach, see the Flickr photo pool
Words on Skin, which has images such as “Someday”  written on a woman’s belly and
“my autobiography” written across a woman’s collar bone.
