Mid-Sneeze Portraits: See the Soul Escape

I even loved her when she sneezed.

Judging by a set of photos from Swedish artist Ulf Lundin, the human sneeze face falls somewhere between the cry face and the O-face in terms of absurdity. Neatorama introduced us to the photographer who takes snaps of people in the throes of some very ugly, messy achoo action. Bless You, indeed. Seeing all this sneezy spray is enough to make us want to shower in Purell.
