News > “1/2” Project Optical Illusion Portraits
Monday, February 6, 2012
Venezuela based artist Jesus Gonzales Rodriguez creates a hybrid of portraiture and profile photographs in his “1/2” project. The use of multiple angles against a plain background allows for both a front view as well as a side profile view of the subject. I find this uncomfortably intriguing as both sides of my brain are fighting to see both angles…simultaneously. Very mind boggling.
