Tadao Cern (Lithuania) used to be an architect who decided in 2010 to change his profession and follow his dreams becoming a photographer. He travels around the world doing personal projects and always searching new things to do. In his page, he invites all the people not to be afraid of changing their lives and taking risks. He recently did a project in which he searched the double of a Vincent Van Gogh’s self-portrait, having an amazing result. The project was called Revealing the Truth. Cern published a humorous about his work, which you can see below.
“Revealing The Truth”
“Long long time ago a stranger asked me to make his portrait… So I did.
I sent him the image and I never heard back from him again since that moment.
Not long ago I saw one painting and I felt that it was very familiar to me.
And then I got it – It was a copy of my photo!
I did a little research on that and it seem that the guy who draw(copied) it is quite well known around…
His name is Vincent Van Gogh and I was lucky enough to make his portrait.
Pity that he never mentioned me and I can’t find his contact now…
Explanation for people who got confused: text above is just a joke. This image is a digital recreation of the artist’s most iconic self-portraits using photography and digital retouching. The video is a comparison of a painting and my image”
