Honey fact: Some ancient cultures used honey in embalming procedures. It’s always appropriate to leave offerings of honey at a gravesite. In addition, the folklore of a number of societies indicates that a blend of honey and milk is an acceptable offering to deity. In particular, honey is sacred to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty.

The results are pretty sweet. In his “Preservation” series, the photographer uses the medium as a sort of liquid amber, and it reminds me a little of poly resin. “The honey has a way of democratizing people, to transform them in kind of a universal way,” Little explains in this behind-the-scenes vid…

Moxie (2014)
Dogs and our pets are such an important part of our families. I thought it would be important to include them in the project.

Moxie was fun and cooperative, well trained. We really let Moxie do what he wanted. He was quite the performer.

We just had to keep him from eating all the honey.
