Origami Face Surgery

March 12, 2013 | Marina Galperina

This is a pretty girl. Her face is bursting with geometry, folding out on itself, blooming outwards, sporing delicate mutations… another eye, another lip, another eye, another lip…

Photographer Alma Haser‘s Cosmic Faces series is contra-magical surrealist. After taking portraits of her subjects, she prints and prints and prints their faces, constructing complex origami structured mirroring and distorting their likeness, yet still expressing their selves.  Then, everything is re-photographed.

The results are fucking frighting. And gorgeous. We love it.
