diana scherer • pairs

diana scherer's work uses flat photographic cut-outs of people to jarring effect. i especially like the strange way the figures are paired, the imperfectness of the bodies, and how we never get to see any of their faces. in that last respect, sort of an interesting contrast to the reverse portraits by marjaana kella i posted about a few days ago.

you can take a peek at more of diana's work here. she is represented by van zoetendaal collections in amsterdam.
