Enrico Nagel’s “Behind The Glass” Portraits

by Jane KenoyerPosted on


Berlin artist Enrico Nagel has done a body of work entitled Behind The Glass. Nagel is know for his photography and collage work but in this series he has approached his subjects in an entirely new way. Nagel scanned each person’s face for 30 seconds with a scanner to create this series of people seemingly trapped in a dark stillness. By using this unconventional method he has removed the gaze of the photographer and dismissed the idea that an artistic filter is needed to capture the faces of his subjects. This resulting soft focus effect challenges the observer’s eye and imagination.
