StARTing with Home: Joseph Mays, projection photographer

Kelsee Bryant

Projection photography is a different kind of photography which shines a design from a projector onto a subject to capture the shot, and Joseph Mays perfects this art.
“I’m fascinated by the way changing the light on the human form can make the familiar into the unfamiliar. Suddenly we see the human form in a new way.” This is a quote from his website where he shows his work.


These are the ones that most attracted me and it’s because of the way the human body is accentuated but only where the light hits. It turns the body into a work of art with the designs and the choice of colors and especially in all the different positions. It’s gives a relaxed, almost somber, feeling and I think that’s what makes them stand out (aside from the bright colors).
