Last night my roommates from the dorm and I enjoyed a quite fun studio session. None of them had their portraits taken in a studio before and even though they were nervous to be in front of the camera at first, they were laughing and jumping all over the place by the time we were finished (and that is by 3:00 a.m). Of course I got my share. Taking portraits of friends is such a pleasure for me, nothing fascinates me more than the human face and how it can differ. Hope you enjoy!

Some ideas that I’ve come up with and photographed for the territorial self portrait project assigned by my photography class. Hope you like them!

“Levi van Veluw´s photo series are self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers; modifying the face as object; combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object of great visual impact. The work you see therefore is not a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content. The image contains the history of a short creative process, with the artist shifting between the entities of subject and object.
‘Landscapes’. This 4-piece series reinterprets the traditional landscape painting, removing plots of grass, clusters of trees, babbling brooks from their intimate 2 dimensional formats and transposing them onto the 3 dimensional contours of his own face. Thus a fresh twist is given to the obsession inherent in the romantic landscape of recreating the world and simultaneously being part of it. The romantic landscape and self-portrait genres are combined as a means of re-examination.”
