Eva Lauterlein


Contemporary European Photography


“Something tells us that these beings are not fully human. There is a disenganged, robotic quality to them. Yet Eva Lauterlein’s subjects [in chimères] are real, and human - to a degree. Or rather to several degrees. Their faces and bodies are computer-aided reconstructions from photographs of real men and woman she knows, with as many as forty different photographs employed.” (quoted from From Face: The New Photographic Portrait by William A.Ewing with Nathalie Herschodorfer; via)
