Woven Portraits by David Samuel Stern

By actually weaving two separate prints on vellum of the same model, Brooklyn-based Photographer David Samuel Stern aims to build a bridge between direct portraits and abstraction. This way of abstracting the images does not only offer his subjects a way to hide within themselves, but also turns digital photography into physical objects by adding geometric texture. Being poets, choreographers, artists or programmers, all of the models featured in “Woven Portraits” are creative types in their own field.
