Ervon Todd has a very entertaining Tumblr account. On it she recently posted the top photo, Mayonnaise Stigmata, that she took in the late 90s.  It immediately reminded me of another creamy stigmata oriented shoot by Todd’s pal and former collaborator, Geoffrey Heath – these two used to photograph weddings together, imagine!
