The cut-out portraits of Brazilian artist Lucas Simões are pretty amazing, consisting of layering the same photo up to 10 times, he invites intimate friends over to tell him a secret as he takes their portrait. However, his intention was not to hear their secret, but to capture the expressions of each one at the moment they revealed their secret.
Simoes’s also asked each one to choose a song for him to listen in his earphones while he photographed them.
After the photo session, he asked each one if the secret had a color, and these are the colors the portraits carry. From this photo shooting session he chose 10 different portraits to cut and overlap.
Though he uses a different technique, it reminds me a bit of the work of Christopher Coppers.
