The book shows permutations of the outer human shell created with costumes and masks as well as photo-technical and artistic manipulation. Images and sculptures are intensified, altered, and distorted. Classical proportions, visual traditions and all rules that generally determined what is beautiful and fashionable have been completely ignored.
“Doppelganger explores how many or how few effects the depiction of a person can take in order to function as such. In doing so, the book shows that the unique visual appearances being created today often reveal more about the identities of their subjects and creators than their “real” faces ever could.”
