Idols & Monsters (2013)

These miniature portraits were made from ‘found’ Googled photographs of celebrities and criminals covering themselves. Having concealed their faces from our gaze the unknown celebrities become tragic victims while the unknown criminals become faceless monsters on to which we project our fears.
