“Impermanence” is a series of portraits by Korean photographer and microbiologist Seung-Hwan Oh who drowns his films camera before using them, into a cultivation of fungus mushrooms. The bacterias devour the film for an abstract and destroyed result. A beautiful way to mistreat a film and to rebel against the perfect and idealized pictures we see everywhere nowadays.

South Korean artist Seung-Hwan Oh creates beautiful portraits by letting fungus grow on film.

Escher. Self portrait.

Escher self portrait (not our Escher - the artist Escher!) What an interesting idea for a portrait. Difficult to do though and in pencil! As if under a microscope or being inspected.

Gustave Courbet, Self-Portrait. In my opinion this is what romanticism is all about - emotion. The expression on his face is surprised and socked, and the fact that it's a self-portrait makes it even more incredible. This could also symbol that he may have seen something that he did not enjoy and captured it himself as he knew what it felt like.

Gustave Courbet, "L'homme Désespéré", self-portrait, 54 x Painted when he was still transitioning to his signature style of Realism, this self-portrait of Courbet has become iconic.
