Misunderstanding Focus

Nerhol is a pair of Japanese artists comprising Yoshihisa Tanaka and Ryuta Iida who were both born at the start of the 1980s. Misunderstanding Focus is a series of various portraits hollowed in relief, each formed of approximately one hundred sheets of paper piled up. This artisanal way of creating 3D offers a unique visual rendition that gives a sculpted and distorted appearance to each face. The process used demonstrates the difficulty of accurately reflecting by a unique photo the complexity of a human face, its physiognomy like its countless emotional states.
