i’m jealous of helen sear

I seem to have a portrait theme going this week, so I’ll just roll with it… although, does the back of someone’s head count as a portrait?  These beautifully layered photographs are from a series titled Inside the View by British artist Helen Sear. The landscape and the portrait are taken at different times, at different locations and then superimposed over each other. Through a technique {that I don’t even pretend to understand} she hand-draws/digitally erases parts of the image, revealing the other underneath. I don’t know how she does it, but the final result is lovely… almost like a delicate veil over the entire photograph.

{Helen currently has a new show titled ‘Beyond The View’, featuring work similar to the pieces shown above, at the KLOMPCHING GALLERY in Brooklyn until June 11th. There is an artist reception next Thursday, May 13th from 6 ~ 8pm}
