Counterpart V by LashelleValentine Counterpart V by LashelleValentine
This is the order they are to be seen when hanging on a wall:


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So these were inspired by artist Dan Mountford, you should really check out his work if you haven't already.
I thought about the ideas of making double exposures. I have always wanted to combine portraits and people with natures and landscapes. I enjoyed the surreal effect of the idea of a person made up from nature scenes such as trees, leaves, flowers, and other living things. I wanted to make it so that when you look at the finished piece, you see just a little bit of the person, but a lot of the natural beauty that surrounds us every day. The idea of the flowing nature scene along with the way that the body flows really fascinated me. I wanted to explore the relationship of two very different living and beautiful things. By doing these double exposures I feel like I've brought the nature scenes to life in a serene and interesting way.

The only fault that this really has are the voids between the leaves throughout the face without any color to differentiate between the main subject and the background. It works well for the center of the face where it looks stoic and realistic, but the voids around the edges detract from the image, primarily on the chin and the front of the hair. Maybe if you double layered the leaves to give it a fake level of depth in that area.
