Surreal Self Portrait for Exhibition

I created this concept for a surreal self portrait in 2007. The problem with with the original was I didn’t shoot it in raw and the file was compressed, so in order to enlarge it I had no choice but to recreate it.

Its interesting to revisit a concept and take it into a new direction. I love it in color with a warm filter thrown into it. The original was black and white so here’s a version of it.

When transforming this image to black and white it appears to be a sketch or painterly in nature. I admire peoples reactions trying to figure out the medium and how it was created.

I desire to branch further. If you are interested to have your portrait taken in this surreal fashion simply reach out to me.

Thank you for interest.
