Utah based artist and photographer John Poppleton’s series Black Light Bodyscapes is an amazing mix of body painting, black lights, and photography. The soft landscape art with models acting as the canvas become illuminated by the black light to make incredible portraits
From the artist:
I’ve always been in awe and wonder of the beauty found in nature. Inspired by the colors and textures found in sunsets. The excitement and anticipation of the next lightning strike with its thunderous heart pounding report. Majestic waterfalls to sublime mountain skylines with their reflections in the still lakes found beneath them. From the eerie allurement of the Northern Lights to the cosmic artistry seen throughout the universe.
Black Light Bodyscapes combines the beauty of the female form with the splendor of God’s creations found in this world and worlds beyond. Using temporary fluorescent materials the scenes are painted directly on the skin and photographed in modest poses to create a piece of art that is as unique as you are.
Here’s a cool behind the scenes video of the process involved in creating these images
