Veteran magazine editor Richard Pérez-Feria knows Blake Little‘s work intimately. He has over the years frequently commissioned the famed LA-based photographer to shoot celebrities and has a portrait shot by Little of actress Sonia Braga hanging in his home.
When Pérez-Feria recently caught up with Little for a Q&A for 50+ focused website nowitcounts.com, the photographer – whose career trajectory mirrors that of early subject Tom Cruise – spoke about a new, intriguing focus. One that is sure to garner much more attention starting at the end of this year:
“My brand new body of work is called Preservation. I photographed 90 people — men, women, children from age two to 85 – all completely covered in honey. Preservation will be published this December and exhibited at the Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles in March 2015.”
