water portraits


The Water Portraits series is an archive of photographic portraits collected through Google Image Search, which after an image input on the search bar, automatically sorts the results for color values and physical appearance of subjects. Every final portrait is the result of multiple morphs between many of these found-images into one.

These elements are a sample of aesthetic models in social media portraits, advertising and stock images. Each portrait is a kind of representation of the Google Images’ algorithm.

“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water.
If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

― Bruce Lee
