Photographer Andy Lo Po and English art director Gem Fletcher recently released the Experiments series, which explores the concept of identity. For many photographers, makeup is a useful way to transform models into different characters. This series goes beyond makeup in order to convey the idea of a second skin in a striking new way,

The Experiments series explores the concept of identity through the use of abstract masks. In each image, the model is covered with a different artifice that conveys the idea of a second skin. Instead of only relying on makeup, Po and Fletcher also used unexpected materials such as paint and collage. The result is a series of stunning portraits that convey the abstract notion of performing a different identity.
