The Rick Genest and Nik Thakkar captures by Lefteris Primos are hauntingly sensual.

The 'Projections' series by Lefteris Primos features Rick Genest projected onto a wall-sized vinyl screen. Up-and-coming model and blogger Nik Thakkar poses, seemingly encapsulated by billowing wisps of silk and the zombie boy himself. In one image, Thakkar is mirrored by Genest, creating an eery, ghost-like connection between the two models and the viewer. The photographer uses harsh shadows and high levels of contrast to evoke a complex duality. The technical aspect of the photography enhances the aggressively alluring characteristics of both the six-packed model and zombie man.
