The images look fun, the background sets are simple but with a splash of a color, which contrasts beautifully with the model’s dual-toned skin. Items like precious stones and googly eyes stickers were used in this photography art as a way to demonstrate how the model is objectified by random strangers and how they separate him from “normality” simply because of the way he looks.
