Admit it: Whether it was back in your high school’s library or more recently, during a really slow day at the office, you’ve made a photocopy of your face before. In his series Behind the Glass, Berlin artist Enrico Nagel (who bizarre collages of humans with flower heads we previously featured) takes the concept and elevates it, creating painterly portraits by capturing his subjects’ pressed-in mugs with a high resolution scanner.
