Extreme Close Ups by Marius Sperlich

A strange sensuality emanates from the photographs of the German artist Marius Sperlich. His camera zooms in on lips, heavy-lashed eyes and risqué décolletés to create sexy images that border on the NSFW boundary.

Tugging on the triggers of lust, Sperlich employs accessories as diverse as toy guns, strawberry jam, spaghetti, mirrors and and roses to take macro images that leave no detail uncovered. Glistening tongues, sparkling white teeth, dark lashes and freckles are brought to light in an erotic, in-your-face fashion.

The works of the Hamburg born artist, who now lives and works in Berlin, can be found on his Instagram page. Sperlich studied at the Institute of Design Hamburg until 2016 and is currently Art Director in a film production studio. Marius captures close-ups of female mouths in compositions that are both trashy, explosive and sensual.
