Scotch Tape Portraits by Wes Naman

View all 18 Photos

You look just like your father.  People always used to tell me. I’d turn and look at my dad who would no doubt be making a ridiculous face, crooked, tongue sticking out, eyes crossed saying, “Awe, that’s nice do you really think so?” Very funny, dad.

Exaggerating silly faces of seemingly normal contestants with the use of Scotch Tape, Wes Naman‘s photography is hamming it up. He wraps them with lips raised, eyebrows out of place, cheeks squeezed and ears pinned to the head. His talent for drawing reaction out of the audience is a treasure. Be honest, how many of these distorted expressions can you relate to this week?

The artist even cracks himself up, recently writing in his blog, “So here is the first of my new series…it’s pretty self explanatory…Full of deep meaning and metaphor, both negative and positive…a social commentary that defies all common sense…HA!”



Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
