Tons of recent photo portfolios have focused on people's lips, but The Human Mouth series is perhaps the most emotive one yet. Instead of capturing the latest lip-locking session or craziest cosmetic looks, this series is all about the personality and character behind the mouth.

Shot by American photographer Dimitra Williams, The Human Mouth photo series shows that the mouth is more than just a tool with a function that helps us eat, breathe and speak. It is also "a free and abundant source of visual art," as Williams sees it. Through the use of hyper-photography, the artist captures the human mouth's textures, abnormalities and interesting positions as much as its emotional elements. This is an absolutely impressive series. Stats for Emotive Kisser Close-Ups Trending: Older & Mild
