Body-painting: A man hiding before the historical monuments

“Lost in Wonder” is a new project of the New York artist Trina Merry, famous for combining the body painting and photography to enhance the human body creatively. Trina Merry visited monuments and “modern marvels” the most famous in the world for the purpose of removing a man in front of each of these exceptional sites. Merry work is quite long and meticulous: each place, it took several days to register with the British model James Kyle. The first day consisted of a historical tour of the place, the second day was devoted to a meticulous study of the details, and finally a third day was necessary to paint the body and take the photos, this last step requiring about 1 to 3 hours on the spot.
