Photographer Wes Naman’s Scotch Tape series makes use of clear tape to contort people’s faces into amusing positions.

Just as many of us have probably done before, the project begun when the photographer’s assistant, for the sake of being funny, began to put scotch tape on her nose, which then inspired Naman to do the same to his lips. One year later, this event inspired the photographer to create an ongoing series of portraits, which features individuals who have plastic tape all over their faces to distort and recreate their visages into a zombie-like spectacle. Naman tries to encourage the models to make expressions as best as they can as well as to try and use their facial muscles to tear off the tape.

The results of the Scotch Tape Series is a creative, intriguing and hilarious masterpiece that makes it hard to look away.
