'Misunderstanding Focus', 27 Quivering Portraits by Nerhol

Nerhol's new exhibition entitled “Portraits (Misunderstanding Focus, Coexistence)”, is featured at SLANT until October 8th.

The portraits from “Misunderstanding Focus” are the result of 200 shots of a single person over 3 minutes. The images are stacked and carved into to reveal the movement of the subject. “Coexistence” expands on the concept of “Misunderstanding Focus”. By stacking and carving into hundreds of layers of mirror-like reflective paper, the reflected image is distorted according to the depth of the layers, and the resulting contorted image becomes the “portrait”.

Nerhol consists of Japanese artists Yoshihisa Tanaka, who “kneads” ideas (kneader=Ner), and Ryuta Iida, who “sculpts” them (sculpt=Hol), with backgrounds in graphic design and fine art. Be sure to check more of their work.

Rosângela Rennó - Vulgo (Alias) (1998)

"These photographs originated from glass negatives in the Sao Paulo Penitentiary Archive, Brazil, which were identification photographs of prisoners, taken between 1920 and 1940.

Archives particularly interest Rennó because they are stored testimonies and traces of a past that is kept locked and forgotten most of the time, as are prisoners. 

Rennó’s photographs are recovered fragments from a decaying prison archive which highlights the gaps in memory and the history of those prisoners.”

Surreal Portraits by Aisha Zeijpvelds

Unusual and surrealist images, this is what the protographer Aisha Zeijpvelds, based in Amsterdam presents here with a portrait series. What is particular is the directing, which appears like totally zany. Some of the models have limbs split into two as while some others have the eyes hidden by a mirror or by a smoke heap.
