Me and You: Week 1 Outcome

I wanted to use the ‘Face Swap’ filter to create the portrait of my partner, Lauren. I chose many different photographs of famous people to swap onto Lauren’s face, such as Zac Efron, the Queen, Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump. I wanted to use people who are very popular in the media and celebrities who Lauren liked.

The finished outcome is shown below.

‘Many Faces’

Left to right, top row: Hilary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, the Queen. Second row: Beyoncé, Zac Efron. Third row: Andy Warhol, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian.

The face swaps allowed elements of Lauren to show through like her hair, but shows the face of different people everybody knows. I think I have carried out what I wanted to portray successfully (using low tech media, inspired by Petra Cortright and using different characters in a photograph like Cindy Sherman).
