Blurred to protect our identities... Face to Face is a series of images composed of a thousand portraits excerpted from Google Street View. Who are these people? Where are they going? Have they really disappeared from our world? Visible both in the form of an online slideshow and a photo installation, Face to Face shows us a machine-washed world...

These algorithmically washed faces make up a mysterious series of portraits who have lost their identities. Erased by the machine, these human beings are reduced to silhouettes, "ghost" images of our landscape.


Show Off, Paris 2012.
