Thomas Mailaender is an artist from France who comes up with his art experiment (Body Artwork) – using “Sun Bathing” to create the pictures.
You may have one big question mark in head, how he did it? Thomas sincerely shared his simple technique that is placing the old film on top of the models’ bodies outdoor; the UV rays would produce the shade to make the photo appear on their skins. However, this is just for a temporary art before the skin goes back to the normal tone.
The photo physical process is the experiment which is created from “Sun Bathing” effect; It has natural distribution when the photograph is touched by sunlight. Some of you may be worried about the chemical danger, but there is no side effect to our bodies at all- except the darkened tone from UV rays.
The works in this exhibition are in one of his remarkable photo book called “ILLUSTRATED PEOPLE”.
