Scanface: A Series of Hilarious Digital Portraits of Distorted Scanned Faces
Using a desktop scanner, London-based artist Xavier Solé has created a series of hilarious and somewhat disturbing portraits of his friends titled "Scanface". It all started on a boring Sunday afternoon, when Solé decided to scan his face. It looked funny and awful at the same time, so he decided to try and experiment with some of his friends. "Although scanners are digital, they have few features which remind me of analogue photography." He says, "In this collection, all portraits have been taken in one shot, without retouching or distorting. In SCANFACES, the image appears on the screen like magic."
