Andre Rucker's latest work involve a series of creative portraits with hidden faces. Rucker's work is inspired by the imagery in Magritte's famous 1964 paining 'The Son of Man.' Magritte's iconic painting features a man in an overcoat and bowler hat, with his face largely obscured by a hovering green apple.

Drawing on the concept of hidden faces, Rucker set out to create a more contemporary version of Magritte's work. The subjects in Rucker's photos are angled towards the camera, but their faces remain covered. Each of the subjects hides their face with an object that matches the background scenery and their clothing. The result is a series of eerie faceless portraits that offer an interesting take on Magritte's iconic work.
