If you're looking for a run-of-the-mill professional picture of yourself you may want to try your local department store photo center, but once you see the Tiemen Rapati Composite Self-Portrait, you'll need to start snapping to get this caliber of creative capture.

A Flickr user that goes by the username 'clickflashwhirr' decided to take a picture of herself on a daily basis for 4.5 years, after she was inspired by previous daily face-logger Noah Kalina's 'Everyday' video. Once she did the same and compiled a collection of facial snaps, designer Rapati then turned 500 of those photos into one beautifully blended composite using a technical process that included counting individual picture RGB values.

The result of the Tiemen Rapati Composite Self-Portrait is an eerie, but elegant time-frozen frame. Stats for Blended Face Photography Trending: Older & Buzzing
