30 Bizarre Self-Representations

From Surrealistic Portraitures to Landscape Faces

— May 26, 2012 — Art & Design
As demonstrated by these examples of bizarre self-representations, what constitutes an accurate depiction of oneself does not necessarily have to entail a straightforward picture of one's face.

Graphics, distortions, backgrounds and makeup all play a factor in these illustrations, saying more about the subject than a basic point and click picture could ever do. The individuals in Pierre Beteille's photography become familiar and compelling because of the use of graphic distortion and animation.

It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Cristina Otero pictures are full of passion and emotion as the young photographer draws attention to her character's eyes by juxtaposing them with fruit. Anyone can take a picture of themselves using a camera and call it a self-portrait, only the adventurous and artistic can go beyond that and create something that captivates through passion.
