Albuquerque-based commercial photographer Wes Naman has discovered how to draw out the best of the worst in his contortionist portrait series Scotch Tape. Inspired by a silly moment while wrapping presents, Naman recruited family and friends to be transformed by his mutant use of office supplies. Simultaneously horrifying and hilarious, each smashed nose and stretched lip provides zombie-esque plastic surgery that one cannot look away from. Never taking more than 10 minutes to apply his effect, Naman uses photography to stretch and squeeze everyday people into fantastically freaky creatures.
