KNOWN FACES, BUT UNKNOWN

This series gathers different portraits we know very well, but presents them in an unknown manner. The faces were captured over the years by a variety of famous photographers, and are images that break with conventional shootings of celebrities.

The photographers responsible for these images of faces are: David Fincher, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Paolo Roversi, Felicia Garcia-Rivera, Steven Klein, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Bill Viola, Francesco Vezzoli and Mario Sorrenti; all of them with extensive experience in editorial photography. Each image has the hallmark of the person portrayed, which is fused perfectly with the style of the photographer who produced it.

Faces that reflect the tastes of the portraits, but with fresh ideas, flawless makeup, lighting, clothing and apparel mark each of the images. Among the faces shown, we can see Viola Davis, Rihanna, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson, Mia Wasikowska, Keira Knightley and Jessica Chastain. The name of this collection is Shooting Stars, which is exposed on Wilshire May Company Building in Los Angeles, California.

Some of the pictures with more character and strength are those of Jessica Chastain, who was photographed by Paolo Roversi and Felicia Garcia Rivera. In it we see Jessica being almost part of the background: an abstract painting.
