i love these portraits by French artist Claire Tabouret, which are actually pretty spooky – perhaps fitting for Halloween… most of these portraits are from a series called ‘Makeup’.

“The artist works based on photographs, drawing upon her personal archives as much as anonymous clichés harvested during her research, capturing figures frozen in an indefinable space-time, in order to advance a new reading of their presences and their appearances.” – Bugada & Cargnel

see all her work here.
