The art of German fashion photographer Carsten Witte (1964, Hamburg/Germany) offers us with his new photographic series “Intuition” an interesting look on fading beauty and facing the death. Carsten Witte takes some professional fashion models and paints a soft, almost not visible skull piece on top of their beautiful faces and takes some stunning black and white photographies of these beauties. A piercing glance draws you into what appears to be a scary realistic illusion, as the gracile details of a human skull appear to be etched into the beautiful faces of women. This groundbreaking and innovative work series about the beauty and the beast offers viewers a new perspective about life and death.
