I’ll be honest in that I’m not quite sure what’s going on here. Created by Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek, Doublefaced is an ongoing series of experimental portraits where a second (or third), rudamentary face is painted with makeup products on the side of a subjects face. While the idea seems ridiculously simple, the actual result is a super bizarre, off-kilter series of photos. Kind of gives you the heebie jeebies. See much more here. (via My Modern Met)
