Origami Surgery

Alma Haser fotografiert Leute, druckt die Portraits aus und verfremdet die Gesichter mit Origami, gefaltet Drucken eben jener Portraits.

The series has three distinct stages. Firstly Alma photographs her sitter, then prints multiple images of the subjects face and folds them into a complicated origami modular construction, which then gets placed back onto the original face of the portrait. Finally the whole thing is re-photographed. […]

There is something quite alien about the manipulated faces, as if they belong to some futuristic next generation. In these portraits the children become uncanny, while their parents are seen in a more familiar moment.
