The Glow is a colorful, paint-splattered series by Brazil-based photographer Sarah Leal. Using neon paints and a black light, Leal narrows in on certain features and details of the human body. The orange and green paint splatters mix together with blue skin to create surreal compositions where lips and hands pop out against the darkness.

Leal reveals to us a hidden world that is only exposed under the illumination of ultraviolet light. She gets close-up to her subjects to capture the intimate connection between the two figures, and the shadows and lights mix together to create a mesmerizing distortion between the forms and the paints.
