Photography: Chocolate Indulgence

These two photographs have a couple of things in common. Not only do they both feature mouths drenched in chocolate, but they both have a sort of creepy, horror movie vibe about them, while at the same time touching on themes of addiction and sexuality. They both show the darker side of chocolate, so to speak. The side that isn’t just sweet and happy. The side that’s a little freaky. The top one by Brittanie Pendleton is definitely a bit vampiresque, while the bottom pic, by photographer Phillip Toledano, actually reminds me a little bit of the Joker from Batman, one part scary, one part silly fun.

Like you mentioned, they both look creepy^^ but it's pretty meaningful.

I don't ever want creepy and chocolate to be in the same sentence!!

I can identify with the girl looking at the chocolate like, "I shouldn't eat you... but I'm gonna."
