The initial effect of Diljin Krishnan’s photo-series—titled ‘The Human Honey’—is confusing, amusing, perhaps even jarring. What are we looking at? This is Krishnan’s rendition of a chubby man’s quest to be desired and loved in a world that is obsessed with perfect bodies. The unique photos combine humour, bathos and intelligence—forcing the viewer to step back and look again. Here’s how Krishnan describes these images:
A chubby human imagines of making a kingdom of his own were he is made of honey. Were flowers bloomed on his head ,bees & butterflies flew around . He seeks attention. He wants people to crave for him, love him, care for him.
