Symbionts by JFN

"Symbionts" was created as an ironic-surreal combination of the preoccupation with portraits of human models and the sometimes very human faces of historical cameras. J. F. Novotny's "Symbionts" replace real faces with the faces of the apparatuses whose task was to portray them.

Weird? Hell, ya. Now let’s see how „Symbionts“ master the face swap between camera and subject. Call them „surreal pop art“: „Symbionts“ has been realised with a reprographic, digital color halftone effect.
