These blurry portraits by the French photographer Romain Houdry come in a series titled 'D-Raw Incident.'

The photography series takes the concept of portrait photography and turns it on its head. It features a variety of photographs of different people -- both men and women. Once edited, the blurry portraits appear as though they were made on a digital format, with a peculiar "glitch" effect that gives the photos an eerie quality. The unusual form of art "mixes reality and sci-fi" in a way that is not often done by photographers.

By changing a relatively banal form of photography that is often used specifically for professional photos or advertising campaigns, Romain Houdry manages to make portraiture interesting again.
