Viewfinder | Manipulated Self-Portraits From a Master of the Form
The artist Lucas Samaras wears many hats - painter, sculptor, designer, performance artist and experimenter in different photographic mediums. Perhaps his best-known work has been his self-portraits which he calls “Photo-Transformations” and began to make with Polaroids in the ‘70s. (Call them the original selfies.) By physically altering the emulsion, he often manipulated the images long before Photoshop was a resource.
