Croatian photographer Ino Zeljak recently presented a series of unusual portraits called "Metamorfoza". Do not be surprised at the slight asymmetry of the faces: the author has combined two separate images in each image. Before us are “composite” photographs of relatives, looking at which you can see how similar brothers, sisters and even … best friends are.
There are many photographers who like to find similarities between different people. Bobby Neil Adams was one of the first to try to make collages from family photographs. He called his work "agemaps" and did them with scissors and glue. Ino Zeljak processes the images in Photoshop, so his "hybrid" portraits look more organic.
Among the portraits of Ino Zeljak, one can see not only photographs of mother and daughter or twin sisters, whose similarity is beyond doubt, but also images of brothers and sisters together. Perhaps most impressive is the portrait of two friends who are almost mirror images of each other.
It is very difficult to draw a "border" between faces, but, of course, most give out the contours of the lips, the different color and shape of the eyes, the cobweb of wrinkles that occurs with age. Well, it remains only to recognize once again that close people have not only kindred spirits, but also, as a rule, similar facial features.
Oleg Yankovsky, an outstanding theater and film actor, People's Artist of the USSR, passed away 11 years ago. He died at the age of 65 from pancreatic cancer. Until the last days, the actor did not complain of feeling unwell and continued to go on stage. On his account - more than 100 works in theater and cinema and, probably, the same number of unplayed roles. He himself did not like to talk about himself and did not speak frankly with journalists. But according to the recollections of his relatives, friends and colleagues, you can make a realistic portrait of your favorite artist
New Year is not for nothing called one of the most beautiful and fabulous holidays. Adults and children are waiting for him, linking the coming of the new year with hopes for the future, incredible dreams and, of course, gifts. At the same time, you can become a magician yourself for a while, because any gift presented to a friend, loved one or just a friend creates the feeling of a little miracle. And edible gifts are invariably associated with the warmest childhood memories
Ted Grant was convinced that when a photographer captures people in color, he photographs their clothes, but when he switches to black and white photography, he captures their soul. The task of the Geneva-based photographer Alex Teuscher was even more difficult: he chose wild animals as models for the series of portraits. Monochrome images made it possible for the artist to present the inhabitants of the zoo to the viewer, as they say, in a new light
This Albanian maestro, multiple "record holder" for mosaics, Saimir Strati, has already been met by the readers of Culturology.Ru on the pages of the site. It was he who created a painting of 300,000 screws and a portrait of Leonardo da Vinci from nails, and also laid out images from corks and toothpicks. And the new mosaic, on which the author is working today, probably cost him more than one hundred cups of strong aromatic coffee, since he lays it out from a million coffee beans
On October 9, the famous theater and film actor, People's Artist of the USSR Yevgeny Evstigneev could have turned 93, but 27 years ago he passed away at the age of 65. His relatives are sure: the actor could have lived much longer, but his heart could not stand the experiences he was experiencing. Evstigneev was married three times, and each time he seemed to have to make excuses for trying to find family happiness. For a long time he could not find understanding even among the closest ones
