Portraits

Arya Tabandehpoor

This collection includes 14 portraits of contemporary Iranian photographers whom I knew through their artworks or the things I heard from others. As I have never met these artist, I needed a collection of facial elements to make my mental image of them: eyes, nose, forehead, hair, etc. The only tool I could use to realize this idea was the face recognition software used for criminal investigations.
