These Eni Turkeshi Digital Manipulations are Elusive

Albanian photographer Eni Turkeshi has produced a series of digital manipulations that leave one feeling dizzy. The pieces are essentially portraits as each photograph portrays a face -- Eni Turkeshi's own -- albeit in different way from its counterparts.

The faces have been cropped and treated in such a way that their outlines seem to pop out of the background while their interiors blend into it. There is an undeniable sense of translucency to the photographs.

Most portraits seek to clearly and emphatically emphasize their subject. In this Eni Turkeshi series, however, the subject is blurred. No doubt, the eyes staring out from the photograph beckon one to reciprocate their gaze, but the closer one looks, the less defined the picture becomes.
