Berlin based photographer Marius Sperlich gives a great attention to detail that reflects in his close up photographic works. He tugs on the triggers of lust by incorporating objects such as dollar bills, pills, and spaghetti in close contact with the body parts of his subjects. Sperlich uses textures such as glitter and milk to capture movement. His photography takes a riskier route by pushing all boarders- even painting beach waves on armpit hair and sticking toy guns in mouths. Sperlich’s Instagram following skyrocketed as he found a unique way to bridge art with typical Instagram content- even making gifs out of his designs.

Creating the cover for Playboy was a dream says Sperlich.  Fascinated by the women’s bodies. He focuses exclusively on the lips. The eyes or the bustier. Close-ups a bit trashy. But above all sensual and explosive. Give to see the intimacy in zoom of the human body. But this exposure is not fully disclosed. Because the raw beauty is wrapped in objects. Also, many details. A bold and languorous work.
