Black Light Bodyscapes combines the beauty of the female form with the splendor of God’s creations found in this world and worlds beyond. Using temporary fluorescent materials the scenes are painted directly on the skin and photographed in modest poses to create a unique piece of art.
John Poppleton was born and raised in the suburbs of Sacramento, CA. He was introduced to photography during his junior year of high school in 1988. He pursued all areas of photography very passionately as a hobby until becoming a professional portrait photographer in 1993, after several friends convinced him to photograph their weddings. In 2010, while suffering from a sleepless night in a hotel room bed, John received his inspiration for using black light and he was off on what has become the biggest adventure of his career.
