It’s been quite a while since Jonna had squeezed herself into a latex catsuit. It’s not that we haven’t tried to coordinate our schedules, but there’s always been something; an illness, way too cold weather, busy with work… Always something. Even this shoot had to be postponed because I fell ill with sinusitis and was under the weather for over a week.
But, at last, we managed to arrange time to shoot.
It is worth to mention that this photoshoot was shot on a Friday, after a long week full of videographing and interviewing people at multiple construction sites around Southern Finland. I feel that with the few bits of energy scattered here and there from an exhausting work week, there was only a limited pool of creativity points left on my character sheet.
Also, because of a busy life, we did not have a plan. At all.
Usually there are at least some scraps of plan, e.g. “let’s try to go there”, and “let’s drive there and see what comes up”.
This time there wasn’t even that. There was absolutely nothing.
But hey, a new location, that’s always something one can look with fresh eyes! We started of by searching around for a nearby park, but, alas, luck was not on our side. The park was not accessible with our means of transportation or we were just bad at finding it, so we headed to a familiar place – the rhododendron park familiar from the 67th Project L shot year ago with Miia. Back then it was absolutely crowded, but this time there was way less pedestrian traffic. This provided us some new shooting locations that we had missed with Miia a year ago.
After the park had exhausted our interest, we headed off to another familiar location, Vantaankoski, known from 32nd Project L, and the very first appearance of Jonna. The riverbank had lost all of its familiarity and greenery had taken over its previously barren and flooded edges. We had to find a place to shoot among the multiple fishermen, but managed to find a small, peaceful piece of an old wall. The very same wall where we started our first photoshoot with Jonna.
A word of warning related to the frequency of future Project Ls!
As I am expecting a baby boy to arrive in around a month, there might be a sudden inactivity spike after this project – but then again, as we Finns get a hefty amount of parenting leave, it might as well not cause a huge delay after all. But this thing called “parenting” is unfamiliar territory, so I can make absolutely no promises. My main focus will be to try to keep the baby alive.
I’m only a little terrified.

Black Princess Catsuit by Libidex
Terrific photoset! So wonderful seeing latex and nature together!
Yup, pretty combination as ever.
Best wishes with the kid…
Love this set! Just the way we like to enjoy latex ourselves. Always appreciate your style.
Well done, Tuomas and Jonna and all other involved. Very nice pictures, indeed.
Dear, wonderful photos as always. I’m father of 2 babies and both of us works. You will find a secret pool of strenght, believe me, but the first months are the worst, finding a new equilibrium. All the best with the child.
Hi Toumas, this is the first time that I leave a comment here and I do that now for good reason: I really love latex, not just as a personal fetish but also (maybe mainly) because of the high creative potential of this material, concerning fashion design and also photography. For the last 10 to 15 years I am constantly searching through the internet for non-porn latex pictures with an artistic aspiration. In this sprit Project L is one of my favourite sites, three thumbs up for your work so far, I really like your aproach!! But, as said, now I just have to leave a comment: The picture of Jonna, that you also use as “title picture” for this series, is THE BEST latex photo I have ever seen. I mean, there were pictures in the past (here and on other websites) that were blowing my mind, but this one takes it to the next level. Somehow I would classify this picture as “sublime”. One can see also on other pictures, that Jonna has a very pretty face, but her facial expression on this picture is simply stunning. This sweet and “innocent” smile (sorry, I have no better words to describe it) contradicts to what most people associate with latex (but in this manner matches the Project L message, that it’s just a fabric) and this makes this picture totally overwhelming. The plants in the background amplify that point. Moreover, light and colors are perfect, this bright light on the plants right of her head.. wonderful. Big compliment for the whole series, but especially for this picture! Thank you Tuomas for photography, and thank you Jonna for modeling. You are awesome!
That’s extremely nice to hear. Thank you for the kind words!
The photos with gloves are SO MUCH BETTER than the rest. More gloves, please! Gorgeous girl!
Hello Tuomas, I think that’s one of the best ‘parts’ of your unique Project L.
ALL of the pictures are great because
Jonna looks so good in Latex but especially the title photo is amazing as ‘beyond normality’ has written. What I noticed: The fabric is so striking shiny. Do you use another latex polish now?
I wish you all the best.
Hi Aron, great observation! Beforehand I’ve used only Pjur’s applied polish, but recently I’ve resulted into using beGLOSS’s products, which you dip into a bucket of water and 15 ml of the stuff. The results are wonderful.
I agree to all the positive comments that have been made about the title picture as well as to the overall shoot, and I want to add that I really like the photos with the yellow bushes in the background very much! The colors of nature as you captured them are truyl beautiful, and they go so very well with Jonna’s simple, but nonetheless great choice of outfit.
Though I don’t consider myself a person who understands art that well, I feel that is right to say that with this shoot, you have reached a new quality level of Project L :)
Well done, both of you!
