The human form revealed/concealed in Julien Palast’s Skin Deep series

While we have seen similar photographic projects to the Skin Deep series by French photographer Julien Palast, there’s something about the execution of these vibrant images that lingers in our mind’s eye long after first viewing them. The beautiful silhouettes of male and female forms are created from a shrink-wrapped effect set on arrays of gradient colour that works to both reveal and conceal simultaneously. The series entices the viewer to gaze on human forms in fresh ways, perhaps inspiring budding photographers to get creative with shrink-wrap styles themselves- although at It’s Nice That HQ, we obviously don’t endorse any impromptu and spontaneous trips to the kitchen draw to wrap unsuspecting friends in cling film for that “perfect” shot!
