Sebastian Bieniek’s “Doublefaced” is a Series of Optical Illusions

Sebastian Bieniek

The portrait series Doublefaced by photographer Sebastian Bieniek features a woman who drew a face (or faces) on her head and positioned herself in such a way that it she appears to be not one, but two people. This project is an optical illusion, a bit of a mind bender, and overall pretty clever, if not slightly creepy. I think that the element of confusion is what makes it successful, and I especially like when Bieniek ventures into public. I’m sure that the model’s presence elicited some strange reactions and double takes from passerbys. (Via iGNANT)
