Face Of The Day

Michael Zhang spotlights Oliver Turpin’s Snow Portraits:

Turpin shot a series of self-portraits, but instead of photographing his real face, he captured photos of imprints of his face in snow. After pressing his face into the snow for each imprint at night, Turpin was able to photograph the imprint by illuminating the snow from below. The resulting mugs are rather creepy and slightly reminiscent of the Shroud of Turin.
