portraits in pieces - montaged portraits

Thomas Kellner: Portrait 16#02, 1999, BW-Print, 28,2x30,7 cm/11"x12", edition 1+1AP

All  of the portraits have been commissions over several years. Actually I am developing possibilities of doing these portraits in colour.
Piece by piece, shot by shot, second by second the image is constructed out of different moments. The expressions, the mimics are different and show us many different moods of one identity at the same time.
The portrait becomes a sequence and denies its own definitions, although the pluralism of moments sums up to a person that we recognise much better by it’s emotions.
