My Lucas Simões Transcription

These aren't really transcriptions of Lucas Simões' Unportrait Series, but are experiments in his style. I love the way in which his work distrorts and breaks up the face, as if cutting through one's personality/character layer by layer and uncovering their identity.

I chose to complete the same treatment with magazine make up ads, as they aid covering up imperfections, acting as a mask. In cutting through and breaking it up, I create something that is almost alien and "ugly", though grabs your attention and makes you want to look.
