Play-Doh Faceless Portraits Steal People’s Sense of Identity
He mixed digital and analog photography techniques
Don’t get scared by the distorted images, those are not actually real people, but digitalized captures produced by Tomba Lobos, a Portuguese photographer from Porto. In order to transform people’s faces, he mixed digital and analog photography techniques creating unique molds of human faces. Headshots are transformed into faces without identities, looking like they are made of Play-doh. And they actually are, as Tomba applies regular play dough to sculpt the shapeless profiles which are later photoshopped. The digital artists relates his project to the old school special effects from movies like Videodrome.
