Mask of Love by Gianni Sarcone

When viewing this Venetian mask for the first time, most people notice a single, slightly blurry face that appears to be wearing the mask.  What do you see? Upon closer inspection, you can also notice two different faces within the outline of the mask.  A woman (on the left) and a man (on the right) […]

A Very Lively House

This interesting house has features that make it appear to look like a face.  The two rounded windows on the roof look like eyes and the woodwork located over the window resemble a smiling mouth.  When I saw this pictures, I almost noticed the face before the actual architecture.  I would be curious to know […]

Comix Face

This striking photograph from Alexander Khokhlov’s “2D or not 2D” series looks like it could be an illustration of a woman in a comic book.  Surprisingly, it is an actual model (her name is Ekaterina Ashikhmina) with her face and hair painted by make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan.  This photographic series was selected as one of […]
