Lucas Simões: CUT-OUT PORTRAITS


Brazilian artist Lucas Simões layers photographs of his sitters to create these amazing portraits. (Artist website)

"In this series of papers invited some of my close friends to tell me a secret while I photographed the portraits of them. But my intention was not to listen to their secrets, but to capture the expressions of each time to reveal this secret. So I asked for each one chose a song I hear in my headphones while I photographed. And after this photo shoot I asked each if the secret had some color, and it is these colors that the pictures load."
