Skin Tight Color: Creating Sculpture Through Human Form

French advertising/still life photographer Julien Palast wrapped models in vibrant colors to eliminating details such as hair, skin and eye color to allow viewers to focus on the subject’s various shapes, curves and contours. As a result, looking at these portraits are more akin to looking at sculpture.
 I came across these images while I was researching human form; I find the concept and outcome of this collection to be extremely beautiful and very inspirational. The simple removal of hair and “personal detail” such as eye colour and skin tone allows the viewer to see past all the possible cultural differentiations and see the true human form in all its glory. Beautiful. 
Below is the collection in quistion, hope you enjoy as much as I do.
