Utah Artist Painted Amazing Blacklight Landscapes on Women’s Bodies!

Utah-based artist and photographer John Poppleton has created a series of striking portrait photographs using black lights and special paint applied to female models.

Poppleton became a professional portrait photographer in 1993. At first he captured traditional images and settings, like weddings, before finding his niche as a more fantastical photographer.

Poppleton’s inspiration to use black light as an artistic tool came from “a sleepless night in a hotel room bed.”

“I’ve always been in awe and wonder of the beauty found in nature,” Poppleton wrote on his website. “Inspired by the colors and textures found in sunsets.”

Poppleton often uses Photoshop to complement his photos, including a 2003 stint of giving people elf ears that coincided with the popularity of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

The subtle cleverness of this woman’s hair becoming the waterfall is masterful.

Poppleton is available for hire, and lists his mission statement as wanting “to create a piece of art that is as unique as you are.”
