Alma Haser is a London-based (Germany-born) artist constructing complex portraits that delve into the nuances of identity. Some of the images featured here are from her â€śWithin 15 Minutesâ€ť series, which explores the similarities and differences between identical twins; after photographing a set of twins, Haser then makes the photos into jigsaw puzzles, switching every other piece so that they are a perfect blend of each other. The result is two abstracted overlays that simultaneously reveal the twinsâ€™ similarities and differences, thereby showcasing how identity is not something that can be mathematically predicted or constructed. Haserâ€™s other experiments in paper similarly create intrigue and ambiguity around her subjects, adding manifold layers to a single portrait. Visit her Instagram to view more.
