Eggshell Portraits by Jess Landau
- Caroline Kurze
Artist Jess Landau applies delicate, nude portraits on the inside of eggshells. Landau first photographs her models, develops the images by hand in a wet lab and prints them using traditional darkroom methods before she applies them on the shell with the help of liquid emulsion.
The artist states: “There is an overwhelming desire to be independent in our culture, while interpersonal connection and a sense of belonging is necessary for survival. This paradox is fascinating, and is the driving force behind this body of work.”
