Since leaving University in 2010, Alma Haser has been working on self-portraits, being her own willing and available model. More recently she has started taking portraits of other people and is interested in making work that has a disquieting or disconcerting resonance.
The series Cosmic Surgery thas three distinct stages. Firstly Alma photographs her
sitter, then prints multiple images of the subjects face and folds them
into a complicated origami modular construction, which then gets placed
back onto the original face of the portrait. Finally the whole thing is
re-photographed. Fascinating in a kind of scary way! Via The Jealous Curator.
